GPS Will NOT Lock
Anyone else having issues with their GPS not locking on a Sprint GS4?
I just used Google Map / Nav daily for several days while on a trip in Tennessee and while driving home on July 31st with no problem...
Thursday morning (Aug 1st) my GPS refuses to lock... can't get accurate map location, can't play Ingress at all, etc... checking it daily since then
and it still wont lock. (This is in the greater Charlotte area of North Carolina by the way...)
I went to a Sprint store to show them, unfortunately the store was full of iPhone employees not as familiar with Android, but we pulled a demo GS4 out and it wouldn't lock either.
Pulled the latest Sprint LG unit out, it wouldn't lock either.
Went home, pulled out my WIFI only model Galaxy Tab 2 7" and it locked no problem...
BUT... I powered up my old Sprint GS2 (Epic Touch) which no longer has Sprint service, but connected with WIFI and it also refused to lock GPS. (Blinking icon, not solid)
So anyone else having GPS problems with Sprint anywhere else in the country, or even better... in North Carolina?
The only other item I noticed is that my phone downloaded a new update to Google Map on the night of July 31st before the problem began,
but my GS2 did not have this new update and still had the problem.
Any advice? Already tried reboots, reset/clear cache of Google Maps app, pulled battery for over a minute and reset... no change
and mystified why it didn't work not only on my GS4 but a brand new GS4 and LG unit at the sprint store. Oh... I made them take all
three phones out to the parking lot so we had a clear view of the sky... so no building interference issues.
