Has anyone noticed if the time for GPS fix varies by ROM?

I'm not sure if I'm imagining it, but I remember 9.1.A.1.140 being a lot quicker to get a fix than most of the ROMs I've tried recently

CM11 feels quite quick, 1-3 minutes, AOKP never got a fix for me
Lovin's .210 and steveboss deodex .210 takes around 5-10 mins

I've yet to try Carbon or OmniROM

Do the programs requesting the GPS fix make a difference? Google Maps and Endomondo sports seem much quicker in comparison to Ingress to get a fix

You need several minutes to get GPS signal?
Either you're in a building and not under clear sky or sth. is VERY wrong with your device.... under clear sky there shouldn't be ANY problem and a signal within a bunch of seconds. I'm using 4.3 version .210, before that CM 10.2, before that 4.1 stock... no problem at all; my navigation app never needed more than 10 seconds to get my position (in the car).

Yep, last night it took over 15 minutes to get the first fix in an open area, with overcast clouds

I used AndroiTS GPS Test, and it seems to get GLONASS sats, but never uses them. Then after 5-10 min, the normal GPS sats kick in.
I'll try reflashing a wiping again, see if that helps.

Logcat seems full of LocSvc_adapter and LocSvc_eng errors
