Default Poor GPS

I'm struggling with really poor GPS signal. It either fails completely to find a GPS signal at the start or loses it mid way. I'm an avid strava user and I find it very difficult to find a GPS signal. I've just got back from a ride which I've ridden loads using my HTC one and strava, and the z2 lost signal for half the ride. I've tried runkeeper too which i has the same problem so I don't think its the app. Weirdly, Google maps can find me OK. I've reinstalled the apps many times and checked all my location settings.

Any ideas or is anyone having the same problem?

This is a 4.4.2 issue, not a sony issue

You will have to wait for sony to release android 4.4.4 or android 5.0

I seems to be a sort of base module kinda thing

It also seems to be partialy fixed in the 438 firmware
