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

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..

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.
