    Hello all,
    I have an annoying issue for a couple of weeks now. For some strange reason, the navigations apps (Waze, Google Maps) don't get the location info from the GPS in Android Auto mode. It looks like they are just receiving the location from the GSM antennas. These apps work fine as standalone.
    Some logs and a video can be found here:

    I have exactly the same issue.
    It doesn't work (location is inaccurate) when connected to android auto. And everything works fine as soon as I disconnect it from android auto.
    The car is not the issue as it works fine with a samsung phone.

    I had the issue with my oneplus 7t pro and have the same with the oneplus 8 pro... This is really annoying and not normal at all for these type of smartphones.

    Please oneplus,look for this asap. I'm starting regretting choosing a oneplus again instead of a samsung

    Yes it is granted.
    I tried yesterday with an older apk version of Android auto.
    It worked for one travel and then the second one, the location was inaccurate again. I just disconnected the phone from the car and the location was automatically correct again
