Samsung Galaxy Note 3 GPS Issue

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.

Downloading...  Fingers crossed...


I'm in process of downloading it now too!

 

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.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 GPS Issue

So looks like they pushed a 581 meg update today!  Am assuming its KitKat.  It better have the GPS fix or they will have a ear full from me.
