GPS not working OnePlus 6

    Mr.Martini , Jan 4, 2020 :
    Since yesterday (03/01/2020) the GPS on my OnePlus 6 is not working anymore. Both Google Maps and Waze could not find a GPS location during navigation.

    What I tried already:
    - Restart the phone several times
    - Toggle airplane mode on/off
    - Delete cache memory
    - Installed a GPS testing app: this told me there was "No Fix" and the signal was not strong enough.

    However, I live in Belgium and I have never had any issue with GPS connectivity (at all!) In the past the GPS failed sometimes and every time it could je fixed with restarting the phone. Not this time unfortunately....

    Can someone please help me out with this one? Cheers!

    Did you try formatting?

    Does that mean that I need to factory reset the phone and loose everything that's on it? 🤔

    Yep, that's what formatting means. Back up your most important sh*t first.

    That will be my last option. Hopefully something else could fix it as well.

    It's generally accepted to start fresh after a new update as dirty-flashing a newer version over the previous one can have problems.

    so what?! there is definatly a gps problem with oneplus phones (at least on 6 and 7T pro, doesn't matter) and it has to be fixed. it's not of low importance!
    and a factory reset is not actually an acceptable solution to a fix a problem in a brand new phone! who knows it won't happen again

    You act like the GPS has led you into a lake or something. Are you using Android Auto for your directions?

    Search and see different threads with the same problem about GPS to get the proof you need. if you can't or don't want to help it's better to read and pass.

    Visit a service center (if applicable) and get the display fixed.
