I sent again an email to sony about this problem, they suggested me that maybe android marshmallow update will fix the gps. I hope they're testing it and that isnt just a guess. Anyway here marshmallow is still not available for z3c, hope that someone could confirm that marshmallow fix the gps.

I solved this problem by changing in file /etc/system/gps.conf as described in https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=81140#c695

I've been having GPS issues on my Z3 compact for a couple of weeks. It will find my location, but unable to just any form of navigation/trackers. I tested all the different GPS diagnostic apps, and many different suggestions by people. Thanks to post #32 byCider-Red76 I've tracked it down to being hardware related.
Standing outside with a GPS diagnostic app open with no satellite connections, plug in a micro usb cable and pull it towards me slightly, suddenly the connections start happening. Let go of the usb lead and the connections disappear.
Out of 12 month warranty and don't really want to send phone off for lengthy/expensive repair. Need to decide whether to open it up myself and have a tinker, live with it or replace?

I have the same problems like the other users since Aug 15 (lollipop) and its very frustrating that sony didnt fix it like with the update for die M2 !!!
I was hoping that Android 6.0 Marshmallow will fix the problem but i have updated it and GPS still doesn´t work. Definitly my last Sony product if the don´t fix this software problem soon!

I also hoped that the Marshmallow update (6.0.1) would have solved this GPS problem, but it didn't. GPS Test shows still NO FIX and it can't lock any of 21 satellites that are available. Do something Sony!!!

I can confirm that marshmallow update doesnt solve the problem, my z3c has still warranty, but i have a crack on the rear glass (caused by myself) and sony assistance asked me 90 euros to change it, even if i just want to repair gps and not the rear glass. They say that i have to fix all the phone or nothing. Judge by yourselves...

I experience the exact same problem.
@SUPPORT: It cannot be that we all are having faulty phones. So when will you fix this software problem?

Same problem here.
It seems like it's a software problem and can be fixed using the procedure explained here:
Has anybody except Larrxi tried this? You need root privileges for that though.
