Maps Official app doesn't get GPS location after Aurajoki Updateimage description I've turned on the data mobile and GPS but it doesn't get location, before the update it took just few seconds to get the GPS location.

Does anyone know how to fix it?

Doing nothing the problem was solved.

How can this question be closed with reason "the question is answered, an answer was accepted" when there is no answer? Not even in the comments.

Hi, I can confirm this bug on my Jolla C with OS version (and the app GPSinfo)

With the previous OS version ( ?), it took around 30 seconds to have a GPS location (with at least 3 used satellites). But now, after several minutes, the GPS is still searching a position (with less than used 3 satellites or sometimes with 4 used satellites). Obviously, I tried to reboot the phone and to disable/enable the GPS.

Edit: Around 25 satellites are currently detected but only 1 or 2 are used.

JP-1 w/ and I have the same experience with GPSinfo and c:geo (android geocaching app). 0 of 25 satellites used and stuck on my home location "forever". It could take up to 10 minutes before I have correct coordinates and moving or standing still don´t seem to make any difference. Reboot have no apparent effect.

Same here. GPSinfo app has 0/25 satellites and no location.

Hi. I observe that after upgrade to MeeRun is often loosing GPS position. I'm still testing this, but I have impression the upgrade did something wrong to GPS. But at the beginning the position is found, just maybe it takes longer than before.

After further tests I'm not convinced anymore that GPS really works worse than before.
