After trying various native and non-native Navigation Apps, the current position is always abput 1 or 2 km wrong.They have all zhe same position, so it's not randomly displaced for each map. Did I miss something?

If you have developer mode enabled, make sure you have closed all location-related applications (maps etc), wait 50 seconds, and then ssh into the device and do:

killall geoclue-hybris
QT_LOGGING_RULES="*.debug=true" /usr/libexec/geoclue-hybris

then start your maps application.

You should see a bunch of information (NMEA strings plus location lat/lon/accuracy updates) being emitted (once you have GPS lock).

Use Google maps or something, on a desktop computer to check to see if the location reported from the geoclue plugin is correct or not. If it is not, then the GPS itself is reporting incorrect values; if it is, then something is messing with the data before it gets to your mapping application (e.g., possible bug in Alien Dalvik).
