Works for me. Just tried it in plane mode, Google Maps worked perfectly fine. I flashed the russian pie rom with newsflasher.

The same for the Czech version of Android 9 PIE on XZ1 Compact: GPS does not work after the update.
2018-11-23 12:07 PM
the GPS in the XZ1 is not working well (not at all) . . .
Checked GPS with the standaard support option in the phone settings (tests) and all the tests are passed except the GPS, this fails over and over . . . also after the update to Android 9 and several reboots . . .
With the downloaded tool GPS Status also checked, no GPS found (still calculating GPS-posistion)
Is there a fix or ??

Same here, after upgrading to Android pie the GPS is very unreliable and rarely gets a fix.

Same problem here. GPS is failing a lot since the Pie update. Really annoying when you are traveling. GPS on/off seems to work to solve the problem but not always.
I really like to have this problem solved. This update is not exactly what I expect from Sony. After problems with the pincode after the update I had to do a factory reset en now also problems with the GPS. This is not what I payed for....

I have exactly the same isue since thé android update.
Here is my temporary workaround:
Use the following Xperia test Phone number to go in The gps settings :
Select gps then purge test data
It should work fine now
But as I say it was a temporary workaround as I must redo this every weeks at least !!!
