    This is recent, in the last week. It used to be that when I turned the screen off google maps would give me turn by turn directions, now it just says "GPS signal lost" and when I turn it back on it has gone back to the screen where it asks me to start navigation.
    I have turned on all background options that I can think of. Any ideas?

    Same. I picked up my wife from the airport yesterday and wanted to use Maps navigation to make sure I knew where I was going. Totally flaked out when I turned the screen off. More than once actually. I've seen this before. After an update and it acts buggy. Not the first time, not the last.

    Make sure that Google maps is allowed to use data in the background. If it isn't, then as soon as screen is turned off it will lose GPS signal.GPS turning off when when shuts off-screenshot_20190514-115203_settings.jpgGPS turning off when when shuts off-screenshot_20190514-115156_settings.jpg

    I have everything checked. Double checked with your post to make sure.

    go into settings/device care/battery and see what power mode you are in. My phone flips to medium power setting every so often and when it does, the GPS stops working with the screen goes off. Changing the setting back to optimized fixes the issue.
