Why isn't there any reaction or comment from Xiaomi to this issue? Xiaomi mi band 4 doesn't work with Xiaomi smartphones but with others like Samsung. That's a shame for Xiaomi.

Same issue here, phone xiaomi redmi note 8 pro, mi fit have all app permissions, GPS high accuracy, (tried with only GPS too), battery optimization disabled for Mi fit.

Same here with my MiBand 4 with a Moto Z Play. Erratic behavior of GPS in the app.

It starts out fairly OK, although GPS updates quite slowly. Then after a few hundred meters it starts jumping around. The weird thing is that if I run Google Maps simultaneously, Google Maps will show the correct location with continuous (smooth) updates, while the MiBand registers totally different locations where I never was.

Would be nice if Xiaomi would launch an update that fixes this.

I've just tried the new update with my mi 9 se and its still broken.
out of curiosity i've tested it also with my old oneplus x with LOS 17.0 and i see the same issue there.

so starting a workout (like walking) on the band is still **ing up gps.
please Xiaomi.. FIX THIS!

same here. Redmi note 8 pro. I walked about 1km and app showed me 14km !!! on maps the lines were jumping from one side of city to another, not even following the paths... just straight lines.

looks like i've got the problem fixed by enabling access to notifications.
sadly it looks like this dependency is not documented

Anyone who has a solution yet?

I am facing a similar issue.
I'm using the Mi Band 4 connected to my Xiaomi Redmi Note 7.
Instead of the Mi fit app, i am using the Amazfit app.

When I start my run, the first kilometer the tracking is usually pretty accurate.
But after that it's basically all over the place.
Sometimes it even stops registering and then 5 min later it starts tracking again.
This all results in very inaccurate results for my run.
