GPS not working : hardware or software issue?

Hello community :smiley:

For few days my GPS is not working on any apps.

In Magic Earth i get a message “No GPS position”, even if i enable GPS search using wifi and bluetooth.

My phone fell on the ground this week, there is a very little impact at the bottom of the phone but all was working fine, … maybe GPS component is broken ? I don’t know … any idea about how i could check if it hardware/software issue ?

Hello, what is your /e/ version and what phone are you using please ?


I am using /e/ OS 0.12-2020093076095 on a Samsung A5 (SM-A520F)

Has the issue started with 0.12 ?

Here is a related issue :


Yes it started after this update.
I’m not the author of this post but the issue is the same : no gps even if i enable everything.

I am not using much GPS and i even disabled high precision features (bluetooth wifi) and blocked mosyt of the apps with trust.

But now i enabled all again and disabled trust but gps doesn’t work.

I can get some logs if needed.

Do you think that a reinstall might help or maybe uninstalling this update ?

There are issues with v0.12 causing builds to fail or show un expected behavior. The build has been removed from our servers. Expect the team to come out with a fresh, working build this coming week.
