    About a week ago. My phone GPS has been failing me.
    Makes apps like Google Maps, Waze, Run Keeper us less because they cannot navigate.

    Read another thread with similar problem. Reply was to find out what was "occupying" the GPS signal and kill the app. How do I do this?

    My last resort is a factory reset I I really hope not to go there.

    Samsung S8.

    First run the phone in safemode. This would turn off all third party apps and just run the phone with stock apps.

    To do that, turn off the phone, then hold the volume down button and power button until the phone is completely on. There should be the words safe mode on the lower left of the screen.

    Then dial *#0*# then check the data for the GPS sensor.
