I had the same thing happen to me on a stock, un-rooted Note 3 - the GPS stopped functioning. I took it back and exchanged for an S5.

However, since you rooted and thus voided your warranty, you might have just dug your phone a nice cozy grave.

It's unlikely to be a hardware failure. You probably just messed up the system files by changing so many ROMS.

Make a backup if you don't already have one
Do a system reset from the settings menu (note that this will delete your user files!)
Boot to recovery mode and choose wipe cache (recovery mode: remove battery for ten seconds, replace. then volume up + home + power)
Use Odin or Keyes to flash a full stock firmware image (replace system files)

More than likely this will fix your GPS
You will need to reinstall the ROM you ended up choosing, apps, etc

I have been trying this with mine today & no luck fixing my GPS.
