Hi I just update my P20 Pro to EMUI 9.0.0.178 and my GPS stops working, everytime I use Google Map it says "searching for GPS" and leaves me a grey dot. It's becoming a headache since I heavily rely on it for driving. Does anyone have the same problem with their phone? I tried restarting it, toggling location, reloading the app, still the same problem.

please help.

Mines was jumping all over the place today. Is there a way to calibrate the compass?

I try to restart the phone everytime this problem shows up, and it seems to solve the problem. But it's annoying knowing I have to restart it everytime to make it work...

My wife and I have the same problem since the update. It looks like the GPS lag to update the position. Rebooting seems to solve the problem temporarily... But I don't want to have to reboot every other day.

Same problem here. Has anyone gotten a solution or has it started working again by itself?

Same issue here. Rebooting brings things back but that's not a solution. I'm on 9.0.0.178 with the CLT-L04 in Toronto.

I have the same issue but only with google maps. Waze and other GPS functions work fine. I usually reboot and it works for a few hours.
