    I have had issues with my Note 3 multiple times where my GPS can't lock on. It will work intermittently and is generally useless.

    I tried everything, even factory resetting and downloading GPS fix apps.

    I've read threads where people tighten screws. I've seen videos where they enter service mode (won't work on Verizon). But here's what I figured out.

    Go to settings, location. Then change it from high accuracy to GPS only. The toggle the location off. When you turn it on, it should switch back to high accuracy and should reset everything.

    Hope this helps!

    Welcome to Android Central! Do other people around you have any problem with GPS lock? Are you in an area that might have GPS issues (like a big city with lots of skyscrapers)?
