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.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I think some on here have already gone through the exercise of installing app by app, and found it didn't help. But woud love to hear your results as well @cheezomlet because if it IS an app then there's hope for us all. Thanks.

I signed up to report having the same issue. I depend on GPS navigation to do my job and this is becoming a big problem.
Clicked the "me too" button to add another one.
Still waiting for a solution that does not include root.

Hi All, I've been having GPS signal dropping issues with Galaxy Note 3 as well. Glad I'm not the only one; at first I thought it was just my Navigon app, but GPS drops out with Google Maps and Sygic Navigation as well.
I've tried using the GPS Satellite utility on GooglePlay to download new GPS data, but no effect. Otherwise, I have to toggle the GPS on and off radio on and off to get signal back. Invariably, it'll lose signal again a few minutes later though. I used to have the same issue with my Galaxy S2, but my Note 2 never had the problem.
