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.
