    /FIXED BY HARDWARE MODIFICATION/

    Hello! After i updated to Android 10 (stock OTA, no root), GPS stopped working properly. It almost doesnt fix location and even if it does - accuracy is very low and phone loses it every few seconds. I tried to rollback to Android 9, but now the problem keeps coming even there. I used navigation apps a lot before and never had such a problem. I saw a lot of people complaining about GPS issue on Android 10 on various devices (OP and other) but i didnt find any solution yet.

    I have the same problem. I've had this for a while now. I don't think it's a software bug. I read a Reddit about similar issues. It seems to be a hardware problem.

    It would be a software bug if you had this problem before (on Android 9 and earlier). I hadnt this problem on Android nine, i used navigation a lot, almost daily 2-3 hours a day during my work, now i cant use OP phone as navigation device anymore and its pissing me off.

    Can't say I noticed this. Google always asks me questions about the stores I go in so it seems to be detecting my location spot on. Even when going into the mall it most times figures the specific store I went to, and asks me to they sell this, do they have that. Scary accurate.

    I thought its a software issue because i didnt have this problem before android 10 and due my job i use navigation like a lot. But well, i did that hardware thing, you probably saw on reddit or here ( look for "Oneplus 5 GPS fix) and now it works like a charm. I did a screenshot right after fix and its indoor (near window)!!

    GPS Test app. I dont know if OnePlus is planning to make a software fix for it, i left a trouble ticket but they dont respond.
    Hardware fix is works, i think its because you significantly increase signal level with it
