Not sure if it would be the case for others but this has been discussed a lot in the slim thread. There is an edit to the GPS config that helps some people.

1. Use a root file manager to edit /etc/gps.conf (mount as R/W)
2. Scroll to the bottom of the file and change

LPP_PROFILE = 0. This worked

to

LPP_PROFILE = 1

3. Reboot

Again I just know this helped in Slim not sure if it applies across the board.

I was exactly like you. I used CleanROM for a long time. It was exactly what I needed. But I was getting outdated so I started flashing different KK roms.

I recommend SlimKat 4.4. If you search the long thread, there is the gps editing that is suggested above. or you can try this one, a slightly more elaborate version:

But the thing that helped me the most was actually full wipe of internal storage in addition to system wipe, cache, etc. I freed up about 6GB and my GPS started working better.
