Hi mates,

Got the G2 few weeks ago, and i got few problems:
1. Knock-on doesn't work anymore when i try to open the screen. I'm on KitKat 4.4.2 and using Nova Launcher Prime if it matters.
2. When i'm trying to navigate using Waze, I can't have GPS signal - It says something like Go Outdoors, Using Approximate Location and so and so.

How do i solve these up there?
Thanks

Does Knock-On work with the stock, LG launcher?

I'm assuming you've already checked location settings for Waze to have this on "high accuracy" for GPS settings, right?

Gps is terrible on the g2, i had mine RMA back to LG UK, and apprantly they have fixed it! well i still dont get GPS indoors and most i ever get is 5m accuracy, not ideal for running or cycling.
apprantly it is a hardward fault but after some googling it seems kitkat doesnt agree one hundred percent on the gps module , jellybean was suppose to work flawlessy with gps.

Your screen may have a dead spot. I had the same issue, and there's a really long thread on the forums about that.

Except for the knock-on issue, none of these apply to me.
Edit: after installing cloudyg3 the problem is gone. Let's hope that solved also the waze thing
