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.

You dog! I knew I should have waited till midnight. The big question will be if this fixes your gps.

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.


ALL HAIL ENURATIQUE !!

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.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 3 GPS Issue

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?
