    I am trying to determine if this is a OnePlus issue or an application issue.

    I have discovered that my 8T it will not update routes in Google Maps as long as the WiFi radio is on and I am not connected to a WiFi network. As soon as I turn WiFi off, the map will update route info. To me, this seems like the phone only looks for data over WiFi, if WiFi is on, but will look for mobile data if WiFi is off. My preference would be for the phone to look for data where ever it is available, starting with WiFi, but continuing to check other sources as needed.

    I don't know if this has been the case since got the phone (Nov, 2020) or if this is new behavior. For most of those months, I didn't go anywhere. I do know that previous Android phones (Samsung and LG) would seamlessly use mobile data when WiFi was enabled and I was not connected to a WiFi network. This makes me think it is not an app issue.

    I guess I liked it when my phone would take the initiative to find data from an available source, instead of waiting for me to micromanage it.

    Screenshot attached shows full bars for data, WiFi on, and Google Maps lost in the weeds.

    Any insight is appreciated.

    I understood what you mean.

    Does the issue exists for other apps too? Or is it only maps. Try playing music or something next time when you go out. Make sure to keep wifi on (but not connected to any network) along with mobile data.
