    Galaxy S5 Mini phone on MetroPCS. My GPS was intermittent and now it seems to be gone. I downloaded GPS Test which says: GNSS status: No Fix. I cleared and updated AGPS. No change. Location in ON, High Accuracy is On. Any suggestions?

    I don't know if this will fix an S5, but it's one fix for Samsungs that lose GPS connection:

    Open the Phone, as if you were going to make a phone call and dial -
    *#9090# -- Diagnostic Configuration (*#197328640# if that doesn't work)
    Menu, select Key Input, enter Q
    Menu, select Key Input, enter 0000
    Wait for the next menu. (It takes a while.)
    UMTS->COMMON->NV REBUILD->NV REBUILD->SYSTEM->PROTOCOL->GPS->IMS
    or, if you don't have UMTS:
    UE SETTINGS & INFO->SETTING->SYSTEM->NV REBUILD->ALL

    Restart the phone.

    Welcome to Android Central! If that doesn't work, then it's certainly possible the GPS radio has failed. The phone is more than 5 years old, after all.

    Restart the phone.
    After I enter the letter "Q", do I hit "OK"?
    If so and then I select the menu again and "Key input" again, and "OK" again, nothing happens.
