I too have the same issue on the stock rom . I found switching over to a kitkat rom helps as it locks on within seconds. I've tried madhi rom and Houstonn PA roms. Unfortnately, I am enjoying the Stock rom LG G2 features at the moment, particularly the knock on, LG Quick Remote and LG Quick window features of stock.

Kernel version 3.4.0
Build JDQ39B
Software Version D803R10c

Same location indoors, different phones:
  • S4 - gets lock in 30 seconds with 11 of 22 satelites.
  • G2 - no lock, no satelites.

Looks to me like a hardware problem. The GPS on the G2 plainly sucks.
Stock D803 4.4.2 Kitkat
