I have updated my Huawei P20 Pro to EMUI 9,0.0.178. After the update, GPS is not working properly. After reboot, the GPS is fine, but once I stopped navigation and start a new navigation, it keeps "Looking for GPS ...". I have tried GPS test app, it just could not get GPS fix. Whenever I need to navigate, I have to reboot the phone. I am wondering anyone is facing the same issue. I have wipe the cache partition but it did not help. I do not really want to do a factory reset. However, it seems that is the last resort I have.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can we have an idea when the fix will be coming? It's been weeks since I first began reporting issues to Fido and they just get me to reboot and have never told me that there was any communication with Huawei from your side. I need my GPS for work. This had been extremely frustrating and inconvenient.
My problem still exists every 24 hours, even though I originally thought it was permanently fixed. Can't wait for the fix since rebooting phone every time I want to use GPS gets old.
Hi all, try this
Go to Settings-> Security & privacy-> Location access-> scroll down to Google location accuracy and disable it
Go back to location access -> adavanced settings-> disable Wifi scanning.
It works for me since 2 days.
It's a global issue with android 9.0
Hope it's the final solition
I had same issue with GPS not working after EMUI9 update. Since then I did a lot of troubleshooting.
- reinstalling from scratch
- reset cache etc.
nothing worked, restart helps until next time I need to use GPS and I have to restart again. Even though it worked for time being after restart, GPS accuracy was very low.
i tried to rollback to previous version 8.1 and GPS functionality is back to normal. Once update applied it worked for about 8 hours and then stopped again.
My email to Huawei didn’t bring much info.
So i rolled back again to EMUI 8.1 and GPS works as suppose to. I’ll wait until it is resolved. Obviously it is some nasty bug in EMUI 9
I reverted as well. I am please there has been some success with it.
Super pleased Huawei offers to a tool to revert, also disappointed such a flawed update made it into the wild. There seems to be a lot of GPS issues with Pie, checking on other forums.
Same issue here, nothing seems to work for me. This issue has been quite a while already and it hasn't been fixed yet, it'll be nice to know when and what should we expect the fix to happen.
Maybe you can try to backup your phone with Huawei backup app through HiSense or on a micro SD card. Then reset your phone and restore your phone from backup. However, I am not sure if you can fix the issue by this way,
