Re: sony xperia ion restarts when the gps

I have been struggling with the same problem for two weeks. Any time an app uses GPS to find my location, the phone resets. I have found that if you open "location services"  in Settings, and uncheck the box for "GPS satellites" the phone will continue to work when using navigation apps. But of course then you cannot use GPS, so it is not an acceptable permanent fix.

Re: sony xperia ion restarts when the gps

Hi,

 

If many are having same problem, it just cannot be all of us have done the same mistake together, it probably should be related to the software or the Hardware. Hope Sony can help us out.

 

Regards,

Samson

Re: sony xperia ion restarts when the gps

Hi,

I have encountered the same problem with my Xperia Ion.

 

I may have discovered some kind of solution at least temporary: I have found that in flight mode, gps seems to work without re-booting the phone. So far I have made two attempts with two different applications, one lasting 10 minutes the second over 30 minutes. As soon as I quit the flight mode with the GPS in operation the effect is to reboot the device after 2 - 3 minutes in both cases.
 
Anyone wants to test ? Anyone with a complementary solution ? Feel free to provide feedback

Re: sony xperia ion restarts when the gps

I removed sim card and my ion run without crash with apps that runs with gps support.. In Flight mode was also good. I tried with my sim card and another gsm company's sim card while gps is on, it restarted again. I also replaced old sim card with new one. Nothing changed, apps that using gps crashes, phone freezes and restarts...
Guys this is Bond's cell phone, isn't it. I'm sure Bond would never buy that crap with problematic gps.... Sony, please little focus and afford. It musn't too hard to solve...

Re: sony xperia ion restarts when the gps

Hi,

 

Even I have tried to check the GPS with flight mode ON and my ION did not restart but the GPS is of little use with flight mode ON.

 

But atleast this proves one thing that, the Hardware is perfectly fine, the problem should just be a software one.

 

Hope Sony steps in, after all this is sony's forum right???

 

Regards,

Samson
