it’s some days that I cannot use waze or some other app like it. I’ve installed SatStat and it show me no satellites. I’m wondering if it could be a setting problem.
Can someone tell me where do I have to go to see the GPS settings?
Since Android 9 or 10 GPS cannot be turned off AFAIK. Older Android, and on my Havoc OS Pie (Android 9), one could turn off GPS by toggling a battery saving mode under Location settings. In that mode only network location is used.
Android 8 and below there were three options; Device only (GPS only), Battery saving (network only), and High accuracy (both).
With A10 and above the choices are gone. So I assume GPS is always on as long as location services are on.
One of my older A8 ROMs wasn’t picking up any satellites. Let it sit outside for about 30 minutes before they started to show up.
I have read that on the newer microG (0.2.28 or .29) the Mozilla location stuff may hamper GPS.
Since you’re on an old build that may not apply. But since Mozilla isn’t very reliable anyway (backend is disabled on all of my ROMs regardless) you could disable it, reboot, and try GPS again. May have to go outside for awhile to get a fix.
By the way, what device do you have and is it possible to move to a higher /e/OS build?
Still runnimg 1.8.1-q on my Essential PH-1 mata.
I have a FairPhone 3.when I try to update (setting >system update >check for new updates) I receive the message “there is no new update” (less or more…it’s in Italian language). Do you think I could update it?
Though the page subheading is ’ Manually upgrade FP3 to T’, T is not yet available but the instructions should apply to R and S.
The bottom of the page has the Q&A " Why do I need to manually upgrade the OS".
