Re: S20+ GPS issues

Yes Been about a month.  Agreed $1200 for what .. I had a 4 year old LG that always worked.

 

I think the interaction between 5G and GPS is the issue.  May also relate to the auto wifi toggle that drops it's connection when out of a known wifi location.  GPS uses wifi to narrow location in urban settings

 

Also, earlier this summer, the phone could not correctly handoff between 5G and LTE.  I have not noticed that recently

GPS and Navigation Apps failing

There is a major problem with the GPS loosing connection when using Navigation Apps like Waze or Google Maps. I've seen several post stating to disable 5g, however that did not work. I just bought the phone and it has all the latest SW versions.

Re: S20+ GPS issues

Ever since updating my phone the other day, I cannot keep GPS functioning with my sportactive workout app the moments the screen blanks or locks. For anyone suggesting the battery optimization, that's not the issue. I have moved everything tracker and Sport related from Battery optimization, remove them from the put to sleep list, cleared caches, restarted my phone a dozen times, and essentially have lost to the last four hours of my life trying to find out why GPS shuts down the second the phone goes dark. It's not a battery optimization issue because now, nothing on my phone is optimized and it is still happening.

Re: S20+ GPS issues

Only fix I found is toggling the GPS off then back on. 5g on or off doesn't change anything for my phone. Rebooting phones also fixes it for usually a few hours.
