Hello All,

I own an XPERIA Z (C6603 - European LTE) updated to 4.3 android version, and GPS is not working. GPS did not work with JellyBean 4.2 as well. I tested it outdoor, and I live in New York so it is not an issue of satellite coverage. Also, I tried to purge assistant data for GPS in the service menu, and nothing changes. Sometime the phone manage to get "Location set by GPS", but it only last for a couple of minutes and then it stukc on "searching for GPS" forever.

Can someone pls help me to fix this issue?

Thanks,
Matt.

It sounds to me like it's a hardware problem. I never had any problem with both 4.2 and 4.3 roms. Stock rom and rooted.
