Default GPS not working Note 2

Very good rom but had some few let downs at crucial times due to which, I got ripped off few dollars because cab driver used the longer way to the destination which I could've know if the gps worked. Anyways, does anyone know a fix to it? Because I've flashed the latest nightly and the problem is still there. Only works on high accuracy mode with wifi.

Edit: Device info: SGH-i317m, 4.3 bootloader.

If you want to use GPS for navigation, then it will not work property with battery mode. You need to have high accuracy to have effective GPS. Battery mode is just for apps to use as a reference not for navigation.
If you have set it to high, then WiFi on/off doesn't matter.

It's not working either on Battery save mode, high accuracy mode without a wifi, even though I have data and navigation.

i had gps problems due to flashing between 4.3 and 4.1 roms, so i solved it by flashing stock 4.1.1 tmobile(my note2 is tmobile t889) rom uvall4 and baseband uvall4 and dialing the gpsclrx samsung secret dialer code(google it). after doing this, i restored my nandroid and gps is still working perfectly.
