-Interestingly I poked around (while I am still waiting for my gps antenna order to arrive) and managed to get a somewhat usable enough accuracy by sticking a 3 layers thick of electric tape betwee10 the back case and the antenna flex.
+Interestingly enough I poked around (while I am still waiting for my gps antenna order to arrive) and managed to get a somewhat usable enough accuracy by sticking a 3 layers thick of electric tape between the back case and the antenna flex.
I had unusable 65 meters accuracy at best and now I have 10 meters accuracy which based on "GPS Status" app by PocketGPSWorld is considered good. I'd prefer sub 10 but at least i can use my phone with waze and avoid traffic.
Playing around with the sticker on the flex cable didn't seem to realy change anything for me.
My guess is that the 4 connectors on the antenna flex cable dont make good contact. So playing around with the sticker as suggested in the thread is likely resolving the issue by really shimmering the connectors more than anything.
In my case I would bet a combination of frequent phone drops / hot temperatures / cold temperature resulted into my GPS (wifi , 3G) to give up.

+UPDATE June 30, 2018: The tape trick worked so good that I didn’t bother going through the trouble of installing the new GPS antenna that I have received from iFixit!
