Has anybody (now that we have a TWRP and root guide) try to fix GPS. My GPS jumps all over the place and it's not accurate. It's seems that GPS randomly losing GPS fix. Than again it's connect (fix) again in cca. 15sek.  I get fix in around 30sec. (on GPS application start), but is far away from my location (no trees, no building just clear sky). The funny thing is I sit on a bench in the park and GPS is showing me that I move (more than 10km/h!!!).

So my GPS is useless.

BTW: I tried every possible combination (software, wifi, A-gps found in this forum. I tried with MTK tools, but don't have root access) and its not fixing my problem.

I have the solution: simply plug the converter cable (included with the phone) into the audio jack. It serves as an antenna for GPS. The fix is done in less than 10s.

I must say well done, someone is taking a time to investigate an issue with poor GPS. This tell us that Armor has a problem with bad antenna (hardware issue). But there is always a but. I bought a phone for my sailing tour and this solution is in my case a bad idea (unusable because I buy a waterproof phone, which is not anymore if I use your solution).
Ok for car navigation or in door navigation. But I need navigation for sailing ... In other words, I could buy anyother phone ex. Paris which has a very good GPS reception, but I didn't. WHY? SAILING ....
