    So I updated to 4.4.3 on Friday the 6th, I use my Moto G's GPS all the time with My Tracks or Google Maps, and now after the update, it will not lock on to a GPS signal outside, even after 10 minutes. When I run My Tracks, it will almost lock up to a black screen after I turn on the GPS or start recording a track. It took 15 minutes for it to start recording this morning, outside. When I did turn it on outisde, it showed me about 2 miles away. Data and wifi was on and fully connected. I jiust want to post this here to see if anyone else is having GPS issues after the new 4.4.3 update.

    Feel free to post details how to downgrade.

    Hello,

    Have you tried clearing cache/data on the apps you mentioned?

    Otherwise you maybe a candidate for a factory reset to clear things up after an OS update.

    As for downgrading, you would have to unlock your bootloader & possibly root the device to downgrade to 4.4.2 or less.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I was under the impression you could flash a signed (official carrier ROM) by plugging into computer while phone is in bootloader. I found the official ROM for my phone at http://sbf.droid-developers.org

    You may be able to use these steps I ran across at XDA http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2542219

    I'm experiencing similar issues with the GPS in my Moto G. It is unable to lock on to GPS satellites even after downloading A-GPS data. Now sure how widespread this issue is.

    Thanks for the heads up. Wasn't aware this was possible. Consider this one a huge win for Moto G fans because this is rare you can downgrade with a locked bootloader.
