Default [Q] Best GPS reception Rom

Hello,
I am looking into transforming my Htc Desire S into satelite navigation.
I plan to use apps such as Sygic (Gps navigation), Endomondo Sport tracker etc...
These aps don't need specific android version (gingerbread is enough), so my only concern is gps reception quality.
Which rom do you recommend ?
HTC One
4.19.401.11 (And 4.4.2, Sense 5.5)
Silver M7, no case, no foil

HTC Desire S
Stock pre-rooted gingerbread
Nexus 7 16G 2012 - Stock JB 4.2.2
(no need to root)

what you might seek- i belive- is not a specific rom,
but the file:
system/lib/hw/gps_default.so
working properly..
If one has trouble with gps signal reception,
one of the causes might belong to that compartment.
that is- anyway- how i`ve fixed the troubles,
look for < gps fix > thread.
check the < hosts > file too, sometimes, editing it,
may help to improve gps performance as well...

if you need links,
in post: #2 and #3

thread, you may find some ideas...
