GPS Problem

Hi

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.

Re: XZ1 Compact GPS not working after Android PIE update

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....

Re: XZ1 Compact GPS not working after Android PIE update

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 :

*#*#7378423#*#*

Select gps then purge test data

Then reboot

It should work fine now

 

But as I say it was a temporary workaround as I must redo this every weeks at least !!!
