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.
I see that Android P upgrade is light mode or say small lite version. No update in any of the claimed features... Its all fake.
Most of the features are disable.disabled. even camera works horribly.
I did a full evaluation on every feature and most are not working. Just a cosmetic update...
I just did a factory reset and GPS and navigation back to normal. Maybe for any major Android version update, we should always do a factory reset.
Good luck with Android Pie update on P20 PRO.
I am having the same issue, my GPS stopped working after the update 3 days ago.
I noticed it yesterday when i launched my STRAVA for walking and it wouldn't pickup my walk. Today i tried to orde a mobile order from McDonalds and it kept telling me i was not at the restaurant when i was.
is there not a way to calibrate the GPS without needing to factory restore? There's just so much configuration on my phone i'd hate to lose it.
I just wanted to add that i was able to restore my GPS by turning off Wi-Fi scanning for accuracy, strange that this would have caused it for me. I will leave it off for now as i'm not ready to do a factory restore unless i change phones.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. This morning it was back to not working again. McDonald's app wasn't detecting me at the restaurant, Strava wasn't moving the dot and Google Maps was not moving the dot either. This was outside no clouds a a big sunshine in London Ontario.
I will backup my media and do a factory reset tonight. I will have to bite the bullet. I'll update in a few days if that fixed it for me.
The GPS stayed in good state for just one day after the factory reset. Reboot did not fix issues anymore. So, I did a factory reset again yesterday. This time, I will try GpsFix app if GPS goes wrong again. If it keeps having problems, I will send it back to Huawei.
