I've always had good luck with gps after fixing the gps.conf file.

I compared it to stock one and it was the same. I am on Verizon, so yeah North America. So do you suggest I flash that zip file? Thanks

Lol. I didn't even read the op. if you're on Verizon, of course it's north America. Try faster gps first. It'll make a backup of the original in case there isn't a difference.

Gps.conf is at /etc. You can open it with nearly any text editor.

Faster gps didnt work or AGps injector
Cut the data from the config file. Copied the file from /system/etc, dropped it in the download folder, pasted over the gps.config file with your file (couldnt get root rights to paste over in ES File) renamed original GPS.config to 1gps.config. Moved my rewritten file to the system/etc folder. Rebooted and got a lock. Why the hell Don't they use this as the normal GPS file.
Thanks for the file.
