I had GPS issues before upgrading to KITKAT. They solved all my problems because the GPS signal would go in and out
with Jellybean.

I am on 4.4.2 with a Verizon VS980. My GPS Performance is terrible. I am happy if it works in the car on my dash. Beyond that, I am unlikely to even pickup a signal. If it does lock on to a satellite while I am driving, if I put the phone in my lap for instance, it will eventually drop signal.

I have tried FasterGPS, GPS Status. I am somewhat at a loss of ideas. My phone is stock firmware though, rooted, with wifi hotspot mod. I am not running xposed or any other mods.

I don't saw any problems with GPS in my international D802 KitKat newest version (D). I'm using it to Endomondo and in a car Google Maps. It finds signal very fast.
