[Discussion] GPS problems using apps

2019-05-04 13:04:18

Hello! Recently I discovered running apps and I tried to use some. I granted the apps access to everything but still the gps signal is weak to none and the apps are not really working as intended. Is there a fix to this?

In the city. I have tried Strava, Runtastic and Nike Run Club. All of them had the same problem.

You can't do this anymore unfortunately as the AGPS settings have been removed since some weeks / on the last few Betas

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 tracking app. Weird
