Since this issue appeared, I think sony has done nothing for all users who are complaining. They could at least add a shorcut to purge GPS data more easily, but no update has fixed the issue or has a workaround.
If they do nothing, I may compare that issue issue to planned obsolescence. As long as they do not communicate about it officialy.

Re: XZ1 Compact GPS not working after Android PIE update

Hi everyone, 

I did a clean install of the lastest firmware. It did no solve the GPS issue...

It is still necessary to clean the GPS data to make it work...

Would it be the time to finally quit Sony and buy a SAMSUNG S10e???? I have been using  Sony phones for 10 years... 

It's clearly unacceptable that nobody from Sony cares of this issue...

Re: XZ1 Compact GPS not working after Android PIE update

I Loved Sony, I Hate Sony 

I have several products of SONY (4k TV, Audio Receiver, Headphone WH-1000XM2, Walkman, MP3 Player, Playstation Pro, Several Experia's Mobile, etc...).

Xperia => Vibrations louder than ringtones. A lot of junk software. Very bad support (No Support)

Playstation => I can't pair TOP PS (PRO) with my TOP Sony Headphones... they are products of different divisions, they said. **bleep**... ??? Both have SONY brand on themselve!!!

TV - I can't pair SONY TV with bluetooth SONY Headphones.... why SONY, WHY ???

In the past it was a top brand, but today ... Money-mouth Face

Never again sony NEVER !!!

Re: XZ1 Compact GPS not working after Android PIE update

Hi, 

I finally find a fix to this issue!

It comes from the phone operator settings. I suppose that the upgrade to Pie delete some informations. You should edit the APN parameters  and add "agps" to it... 

Hope it helps some folks! Slightly smiling Face
