many of LUMIA owners including me have ISSUES with GPS !!! 535/730/640XL/950 etc....all have a non functional GPS for many many users.
there is NO solution except activate location and internet (wifi or data) at the same time. that works every time on my lumia....

but MICROSOFT never bothered to update the firmware to correct the GPS problems lumia owners are facing...that mainly touch dual sim owners all around the world

I have the same problem here. I tried with hardware test, locating via cellular data or wifi responses verfy fast but also very inaccurate. I turned off wifi, turn on airplane mode and it takes forever to locate my position. It used to work fine for serveral first months. Maybe I'll take it to a Microsoft Store to see if replacing the hardware may help.

Are you using Here Drive? Try this if you have not already, it worked for me. Download the map you want to use to your phone. Then turn off Internet Connection through the app; scroll down until you see Internet Connection, tap it and then slide it to Off. You may not get traffic updates but it should get your location and you can still use directions. Hope that works. Good luck.
