Re: XZ1 Compact GPS not working after Android PIE update

I was happy, because my GPS worked like a clock, untill I left Sweden and turned The Phone into "flightmode" then everything about wher I am, stoped working?? I am now in Murmansk, trying to follow where I go, but it does not work at all?

I also tryed my app "GPS test" and it shows apr. 30 satelites is visible but no fix?? Then I guese that gps is working, but not showing my position in any app!?!? Why? And as always I say, what is Sony doing About it?? Or are they expecting that The user fix it?? And now I am trying to ad a screeshot of GPS test, but that is a fail?? Screenshot_20190830-102924.png

Re: XZ1 Compact GPS not working after Android PIE update

I have tried many options - so my gps works  bad, sometimes. It works fine for whole week, fix during a few seconds, accuracy about 5m. A then, suddenly, without some reason, works bad or at all. Gps test app shows 26 satelits and my XZ1C connects nothing. This situation takes for example a half day and then, without any changes, it works...

I'm thinking about returning to Oreo.

Does it make any sense?
