    According to the specs page on oneplus.net, it supports the following: GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo. Not too sure why can't you get connection.

    Yes but tested 5 apps support Galileo and nothing views satelite Galileo.

    Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 support Galileo GPS system but enabled he needs firmware update? My friend he has Samsung Note 8 and Galileo full support works fine and signal is fine. I see 5 satelites Galileo. A app GPS Data + that I tested showed 3 satellites Galileo for a moment but lost them.

    Oneplus 5T Galileo GPS no support officially.


    Please Oneplus upgrade chipset firmware to full support Galileo.

    On my oneplus 5t I'm able to receive Galileo signal but that took a lot of time... OxygenOS 4.7.6 (see captures in attachment)

    I'm still on 4.7.4. No problems with Galileo or other sats. And it's pretty quick.

    4.7.6 Here, I'm able to get a lock on Galileo within 20 seconds (indoors, on a rainy cloudy day, which is why the signal is weak). so I'd say it works well ;)

    Hi, to all users
    1. I want to ask user @gr_nik81 if he had solved his issue ?
    2. also I ask user @Rehylee if he want to post once again some new screen shoots of GPS test application for me. I need to see how good is the gnss receiver inside 5t. Some screen shoots from inside the house (near to window) and outside the building. In his previous post, the second photo it was this application. Here we can see the gnss accuracy in meters, it shows 3.2 meters. I have found this web review, but oneplus 5t has bad gnss accuracy in meters

    Dear all,

    Have done some new test indoor and outdoor with GPS test app
    Indoor at the center of an old flat, on 4th of 6 stories : Screenshot_20180108-194501.jpg

    Then outdoor on a large place with small building : Screenshot_20180108-095957.jpg

    About accuracy, I never got below 3.2 meters. I do not know if this metric is good or not.

    about GNSS receiver accuracy, 2-4 meters is the best possible for today smartphones

    Galileo supported bunt no really work good. Satellites disconnected after a few seconds and sometimes he does not see Gallileo Satellites... The software GPS very bad.

    Apparently, the minimum number of satellites for a full gnss constellation is 24 operational 95% of the time.

    The GPS constellation have currently 31 satellites operational, Glonass 24, and beidou ~8-10 (global) and Galileo 14 (+4 in deployment).

    If we compare GPS and Galileo, it appears normal that Galileo service is not as the same quality as the American gnss because Galileo's constellation did not reach the critical mass for a full operational gnss. Here in Europe, just the GPS and Glonass can be considered "fully operational" on our OP smartphones

    Beidou (Compass) and Galileo navigation systems will be full operation in year 2020. Until then, it will not work full 24H/day

    I have same problem with One Plus 5. I live in Finland and One Plus 5 only find one Galileo satelite if I'm outdoors. Often can not find any

    from the first day of my purchase (5T), month by month, the number of the new satellites increases slowly but it does. Those are the latest pics of my experiments with the app GPSTest. Those very good results are ONLY in open area, with very clean sky and of course for small periods every day, when the new GNSS systems are above of my country. I am waiting when the new GNSS systems will full cover all the earth with 24-30 satellites. Maybe the years 2020-21 ??? Just waiting .....
