4.4.2 fixed an AGPS misconfig issue on this phone on T-Mobile's network, and based on several reports I have seen, I am guessing that fix broke it on AT&T.

You can easily verify this by turning airplane mode on. If the issue is immediately resolved, you can be pretty sure that this is the problem. If so, report it to Motorola so that it gets fixed.

Try a GPS fix app, I had the same issue some time ago and this helped me a lot
I used this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...hibo.gpsstatus
