Default [Q] Which other ROM has functioning GPS beside MIUI?

It seems that GPS support is a widespread weakness in custom ROMs like CM. That is why I was pleasantly surprised to find it out worked on MIUI when I tested it.

I don't know what secret sauce they added to make it work but I'm curious if there are any other ROMs that did the same.

Thanks!

In cm based ROMs GPS is working. If u think it is not working on your phone use GPS status and tool box.

I tested it 3 months ago and couldn't get it to work. I read it is related to the compass not working in custom ROMs. Can you confirm it is okay now? I will be happy to try again.

For example on PA 3.99 it was working (quite slow but it was).
When u are trying to use GPS for first time u shold have internet acces.

Are you using the latest release? In your experience is it good enough for daily use?
