Default GPS losing signal

Hi all

I am running mahdi 0823 all else stock

Seem to be having issues with Google maps. Sometimes it locks on, but then loses GPS signal very often. Or it won't lock on at all.

I have tried other modems but it doesn't seem to help much.

Does anyone else have GPS related issues ?
And is there any known fix for it ?

Thanks in advance and have a great weekend

I was having GPS signal issues with the stock CM11s and Franco kernal. I switched to PA with Franco Kernal and now get good locks. Maybe it is a rom issue?

Try Faster GPS from the Play Store.
