    I am coming from a Nexus 4, which I considered to have dead solid perfect GPS for the most part - fast to lock, track and reliable.

    In my two weeks with the Note 4, it doesn't lock on to the sats as fast, doesn't update as fast, acts as if I'm locked in a lead room during some points on a trip and just seems a step behind all the time.

    I have the location settings set to highest accuracy.

    This is all using Google Maps.

    Any thoughts?

    I had a similar problem where my Note 4 just wasn't locking at all. Took it back and got a new one and turns out it was just a defective Note.

    I just turned on my Note 4, started the app "GPS status". It reported a GPS lock at 5 seconds, inside the house. And it is showing 13 satellite fixes.
    Pretty good.

    I installed a couple of the GPS tools and will see if that helps. Reminds me of the old days with either the N1 or GN, one of which had a similar issue.
