just received my s8. going back from work I decided to turn on the navigation to check if gps is working. It was stuttering so I downloaded some gps info app and there is no fix on my galaxy. The location when stationary is kinda working, shows it more or less precise but when travelling it jumps around.
How long the first fix should take? Any ideas? Anyone with the same issues?

Not sure if the s8 is like other samsung devices, but power savings modes can interfere with the gps locking.

Not sure if its still a thing but I think the first lock can often take a bit if there isnt perfect signal. I know back in the day when flashing various ROMs the initial GPS lock wasnt always quick unless I had really strong signal to the sats.
