    Default GPS sucks after Kit Kat update (Yes, high accuracy is on)

    Before the Kit Kat update, my gps would lock and stay locked. After the update, it'll lock and then lose lock all the freakin' time.

    Anyone else have this issue? Anyone know of a fix?

    Note: Not rooted.

    Now that I have Kit Kat worked out, I've been able to test GPS/Waze/Gmaps for you. It works great for me, so hopefully your problem has been resolved. The odd thing is lately my Garmin is doing what your phone is doing. I wonder if the problem is in the atmosphere or weather related.

    It seems to have gotten better. I still have more drops than before but less and less each time I use it. Frustrating, to say the least.

    We just had an ice/frost/fog day, and I lost the signal several times, but as soon as the storm was over I was back in business.
