Anyone else noticed problems with the GPS (in Android apps) after updating to the latest version Björnträsket (

I've been driving ap. 1000 km using the Nokia HERE Android app a few weeks ago, and it worked fine. But after updating it's not able to find the location all the time.

Noticed the same in Tracker last week when I was in the forest. Then I also noticed that the satellite signal was missing, but when holding the phone over my head I managed to get 7 (yellow signal).

I think to be able to check if GPS is actually working, you have to be in a area with bad Internet, or turn of the Internet positioning support ...

I saw some postings that uninstalling and reinstalling the apps could help, but that shouldn't be necessary every time we update Sailfish, loosing settings etc?

Nokia Here works fine, but Sports Tracker is slow as always.

@simo - what is?

@rooster13 - have you tested without internet positioning, does it still "work" then?
