Dear Redmi Note 7 Users,

I have recently received quite a lot of complains that the GPS on the Redmi Note 7 is malfunctioning, this is probably due to the software problem on MIUI. I have tried to explore it and I was able to find a quick solution to your problem.

Please follow the guide for me to walk you thru this problem until the next update to fix your problem.

I have full tested this on Waze and Grab App which both are quite GPS dependent to work properly.

Such a headache, No GPS while navigating!

Step 1 Go to Settings\Dual Apps

Step 2 Turn on Google Services

Step 3 Turn on for the app that you like to fix the No GPS Bug, in my case its Waze

Step 4 Go to Security App

Step 5 Click the Battery Icon

Step 6 Click the settings of the App Battery Saver

Step 7 Click Waze

Step 8 Click No Restriction

Step 9 Select the Dual App (in my case its Waze)

Step 10 Dont forget to turn on the GPS of your phone, and best to start it outside of the house for better satellite reception, in my case, Waze is working fine now.

Thanks for reading, hope it helps.

It really works! Thank you. One question. Why do we have to duplicate the waze app? Only the waze dual app work good with gps but the original waze app doesn't right?

I try this solution on  "Viewranger", which is an app to record walking  on a map with the gps.
Whitout your solution, the app does'nt work properly because the gps disconnect very ofen.
With the solution, it works correctly.
Thank you very much.
