Just now downloading it .... And now installed! Looks great! Thanks again!

Hi all. Anyone else having GPS issues? I'm new to 15.1. I was on LOS 17 but had to downgrade due to the Verizion VoLTE ditching cdma. I searched the threads and could not find anything recent regarding gps. Going to start poking around. It looks like its been a persistant issues since the last 2 security release 01/21, 12/20.

No problems here. I use an app called GPS Status, which will give you all sorts of data about your phone's GPS, and a bunch of other hardware bits, compass, accelerometer, brightness, etc. I assume you used the intermediate zip, to change from official to unofficial? And, of course, rebooted the phone a few times :)

I did a fresh install, wiped everything. I actually flashed personal build of 15.1 and I flashed the one the the OP thread, same results. Thanks for the info. I will check out GPS status. By chance, are you on Verizon @dbrickg ?

@dbrickg I had to reset and download AGPS through GPS status. I had downloaded the app earlier when you had mentioned but I did not know how long it could take (PS I'm on the 7th floor). I ran it again and it went well over an hour downloading. What happens is the gps module directly communicates with the satelites and does not use LTE/wifi. All fixed now. :p Thanks again!

Thanks for your continued support dwardo. Just a heads up - Prior to installing this, I installed TWRP version 3.5.0_9-0. I tried dirty flashing this update, and it didn't go. I went ahead and reinstalled TWRP ver 3.3.1-0, clean flashed, and all went well.
