I have 2 s20 plus on verizon, they both have the gps issue, tried resolving the issue with all samsung rep, and the ways on this thread. my gps is still bouncing everywhere on google maps and waze, impossible to acually use gps to get directions. Frustrating, when all my previous samsung phones worked fine. Samsung fix this, Or i want my money back, a big reason to use a smart phone is for the gps.
I also have this issue on my Galaxy S20+ unlocked. I'm on Verizon's network. I wish we didn't have quarantine right after I purchased the phone so I could've caught it sooner and returned it. Unfortunately I haven't had a need to use GPS since I've been stuck at home. Tried calibrating it a few times and had no change to how much the GPS jumps around. This is ridiculous. Accurate GPS should be standard on a phone.
Have you recently updated your device? Have you tried wiping the cache partition on your device?
The system cache partition stores temporary system data. It's supposed to allow the system to access apps more quickly and efficiently, but sometimes things get cluttered and outdated, so a periodic cache clearing can help make the system run more smoothly.
Give these steps a try to wipe the cache partition on your device:
Turn off the device.
Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
When the Android logo displays, release all three keys.
An 'Installing system update' message will show for 30 - 60 seconds before the Android system recovery menu options appear.
Press the Volume down key several times to highlight wipe cache partition.
Press Power key to select.
Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Power key to select.
When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.
Press the Power key to restart the device
Please let me know if you continue to experience these symptoms.
Place the phone in Safe Mode to test if the GPS turns off.
If the GPS works normally while in Safe Mode, you will need to locate the third-party app causing the concern.
I just tried your suggestion and I stil experience my issues in safe mode. As you can see in thr image upon locking my screen and just tapping the unlock, it can't find gps, doesn't show ive moved but I actually went 1/4 mile in the opposite direction. No rerouting or updates, just a non working gps
I have seen a few issues concerning the Samsung 20 plus location issues. My phone also has the same issue with my location jumping all over the map making gps navigation impossible while its recalculating every couple of seconds. Also all games connected to location have the same issues making progress difficult. I have tried some of the fixes posted only to have the issue continue. I'm just trying to have stable GPS while I travel rather than having to struggle to get to every location because of the location bug messing with my gps. Please fix this....
