Root doesn't mess up any thing itself. Especially gps. It just means you have access to the heart of the system. If you have access to the system and mod anything, you have the potential to mess something up!
If you just got a replacement phone, chances are you can't currently gain root. The latest kit Kat release is locked out. If your baseband ends with NB4, MJ5, or MI9 you can root. Just don't uninstall, or delete anything unless you know what you're doing and you'll be fine.
