Location update frequency low (Google timeline)

    Hello!

    For my business I use google timeline as reference where I have been and how long travel and visits to customers took. But since I have the OnePlus 8T (previous phone was Huawei P20 Pro) the update frequency of the location is very low. Looks to be like every 8 to 10 minutes while the Huawei refreshed every 30 seconds or something like that?
    This causes my timeline to be very very rough and I cannot even see what route I took.

    Does anyone have any idea how I can solve this? I would love this issue to be fixed!

    Thank you kindly.

    Is GPS turned on? I know it's a basic question, but if it's not then this issue may be caused

    Yes, GPS is turned on, location does work, but is updated in the background every 8 minutes, would rather have it update every 30 seconds like Huawei seemed to do. This is all determined by looking at the google timeline.

    I could do that ofcourse, but it is a brand new phone? Can you tell me why that should help and did you experience the same problem or?

    Thanks!
