So there is no real fix for this?

GPS does work well here (well, not as accurate as advertised, but well enough and better than most single GPS devices).
The change of the sirs server from the somewhat obscure fixed Chinese IP to a more genuine one (e.g. Google) also is a bit of a cosmetic thing.

See, this is the thing. Gps works well with apps like Uber, Bolt, Maps, Waze but not with any run  ...

Here it also works well enough also with roadbike and runtastic.

What just came into my mind: You do have the battery saver set to off for those apps?
If not it'd be no wonder if they're malfunctioning..

GPS problems using apps

OperatorCatuski
Nope, and neither do I ever use battery saver

Errm, battery saver functions are ON by default in MIUI / Android. You have to set them to off manually..

Look at the following picture, it defaults to the second option which causes Roadbike to not get a location after some time / when the phone screen turns off. You often have to manually select the first option in the battery settings for those apps (as is the case in the image) for it to work properly.

So you should check with your problem apps what is set there.
