    Hi, today I noticed my GPS is not working, or maybe I am doing sth wrong?
    The location is turned on in the settings.
    I've noticed before that google maps location was not exact (it showed I was some 20-30km from where I was) but only today I tried to use Waze and got the message you see on the attached screenshot.

    Is the phone broken or is there sth messed up in the settings?
    (It finds my exact location now, but when I try to navigate it wont find gps.

    Also the google maps that I tried to use today instead of waze was really slow to catch up my position and was silent (normally there's voice navigation, right?. The phone's sound was on).

    I am having the same issue with my Galaxy S4. Maps start but when I try to use navigation, I says GPS signal lost. This just started. Is it the phone, the new Maps update or an issue with Verizon?

    Sync and brightness. Right now brightness is set to auto.

    As for the GPS issues, I am not sure what to suggest.

    As of now (4:12 PM EST), the GPS system (the satellites) is working - I've locked to 6 of them and have an HDOP of about 1.5, which is pretty good (it's a measure of how accurate the indicated location is - 1 is ideal, 1-2 is excellent, even 10 is usable). If your GPS is working, there's something wrong with the app. If the GPS isn't working, it's either the receiver or the GPS system. (One bad satellite can give you readings many km off. That's usually fixed within minutes, though - the military and a lot of other government agencies depend on the system.)

    Install GPS Status & Toolbox and see what your GPS receiver is doing. (Outdoors - metal-faced insulation in the attic can completely eliminate the GPS signals from any overhead satellites).

    Maps - I just updated to 9.0.0, the November 13th update - seems to be working fine.
