Samsung Galaxy Note 3 GPS Issue

Anyone else having issues with their Note 3 GPS? I'm having an issue were every time I plug or unplug the charger from my phone the GPS drops out. I have to then toggle the GPS on/off in my quick settings to get it working again while navigating. It also seems to drop the signal when I get an incoming phone call while using the navigation app. I have confirmed this same behavior on 2 other friends Note 3's. I'm hoping this is just a software issue that will be fixed in a future os update.

Crossing fingers.........

I'm updating also. Someone said you could not root the phone with this latest update. Were they correct?

It's supposed to. We shall see. As for not being able to root, I doubt that.

Just received word that the rollout will begin this Thursday, March 27th. Your device needs to have already received and installed the NB4 build that was pushed a few weeks ago to receive the update. Keep in mind that FOTA releases are done in waves, so your device may not receive the update on the 27th.

I'm downloading now too. Smiley Happy It's talking forever but I'm not gonna complain. Though I feel like each byte is being delivered by carrier pigeon. Here's hoping my GPS problems are finally over.

I tried changing my time three different times and tried to update.. No success. I cant manually check for an update until March 31st. It kept giving me an "Update Interrupted' message. Was I doing something wrong?

I probably should wait to see what the "fallout" is but I'm not because if this doesn't work, I'm taking it to the AT&T store this afternoon to swap it out.

 

Wish us luck!

I didn't think this was real.  No news on any of the most current news feeds or websites but I thought I would try anways.  I didn't want to get my hopes up.

BAM -- there it was 11% complete so far.

Thank You!!!!!!!!!!

Updating a major update almost always breaks root but the hackers ususally have that fixed in a short time. Check at XDA if you need more.
