Huawei P20 Pro Android Pie update cause GPS issues

Hi guys, 

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. 

 

Thanks,

Yes now it came up and downloading. 677 Meg's isn't a small update but I used my free bytes for it.

Updated today to EMUI 9.0.0.213. Tried using GPS few times, so far so good. GPS performs great. Hopefully it resolves this.

Thanks for the update.

 

I think I will wait for a couple more reports before trying it myself.

5 days after the GPS update,  have to say the GPS appears to be working flawlessly. Here's to hoping it stays this way.
