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 everyone, i come back with some news and a solution.
@Anonyme : I did a full reset by installing original Samsung official ROM on my Samsung A5 2017. Even on the original ROM GPS isn’t working, i think that my problem is not related to /e/ but is an hardware issue (GPS didn’t worked after my phone fell on the ground in October few days before i started this topic). Today i put back /e/ last version (0.13).
For everyone on this topic i have a temporary (and funny) solution that is working even for driving with GPS : i’m using an external bluetooth device with GPS high precision (my jabra headphone has a GPS chip, but i think that if you have things like smartwatch it might work too). I used it in my car, the headphone needed to be working on the road all the time but i was able to use GPS efficiently on my phone ahaha !
There are some open issues reg this on the Gitlab
I am not sure it is an /e/ issue as I just checked with a phone running stock MiUI ROM ( Redmi Note 7 Pro Whyred) . On this Google Maps places me about 50 meters away from my location. This issue is when you are indoors while out door the placement is also accurate. Have seen the same behavior on /e/ phones.
