    I am unable to locate anything with GPS (tried google map, GPS test, couple others). For my google map, if i put it on Device only, it just shows "waiting for location". When I use GPS test, it shows "No Fix". I used GPS test in the same spot, with my tablet with GPS only, and I easily got a fix!.

    So what is up?? does my phone not have a gps or something (I need to know i'll be able to have gps if im stuck in the mountains w/ no wifi/service)

    You have GPS. I had trouble with it for a bit, then an update was pushed through. You also need to make sure that you allow google the ability to "track your info", or w/e it says. That will improve accuracy etc.

    Hello

    I have the same problems here, no fix with GPS. The location can be detected only by googles wifi locations. AGPS is up to date, as well as any software.
    I reported an support request at OPO one week ago, but still no response.

    It takes awhile... I also had the same happen to me... I turned it on and no lock in GpsTest, but after a day it started working... And when I launch GPS test now I get the lock immediately. But it is a little strange, yes.

    Yep, I have issues, too with GPS. The navigator starts real slow because even with precise location settings finding the current location takes up to 10 seconds.

    Having Issues with GPS it is very un reliable and is taking a long time to get a fix. while on my old iphone 4s it does it instantly.... is this a hardware issue or a software issue?

    10 seconds is not slow. You have no problems with GPS locking.

    Ok guys GPS fix for the One plus one found on reddit. thank you user: "nbuster"

    "
    I did have issues. The GPS' compass could not lock onto my orientation.

    I downloaded GPS Status and ran it, let it do its thing. It calibrated everything perfectly.

    It is now by far the most accurate GPS I've had, and I don't say it lightly (previous owner of SGS3, LG G2)

    Hope it helps :)"
