    I have found this little bit time but when i have cleared cache of google as well as google map then actual location has been working now.

     I have exactly the same issue since yesterday evening. I have tried several apps to test, but not will find my position via GPS.


    I'm new to the forum. Can somebody tell me if Nokia support is also reading and replying in this forum?

  • They are if your phone ships with the wrong cable....

    Otherwise no, we're on our own.

    Hi try thw following

    As mentioned above clear cache of google maps and Google. Also install GPS status app. It can help you see if your sensors are working fine. I had this problem in around may but now my gps is working fine

    I have tried 6 apps now and only google maps is working. As Waze user this is a showstopper for me. Hopely a solution is found soon.

     I have contacted Nokia Chat and they solved this issue for me. In the settings revoke all permissions for all apps. After that you need to authorize apps again, but it did solve the issue for me.

  • Thanks Stelling, that tip worked.  Hopefully it's a permanent fix.  I thought it was odd that I requested Lyft yesterday and the driver pulled up to the apartment building across the street from me.  My GPS seemed to be off by about 20-40 yards.  This happened from May-August updates.

    Thanks Strelling, this solved my problem on My Nokia 6.1 Plus, on Android 9

    I just went to Settings > System > Advanced >  Reset Option >  Reset app preferences

    And now all location based apps like Google Maps and Waze are working fine.

    I experienced the same problem on Nokia 8, with the GPS not working in any apps anymore. Don't know when it happened, but perhaps after updating it to Android 9.  Resetting app preferences solved it. Thank you God all mighty, I thought my phone was broken. God bless you guys  for sharing a working solution, very kind of you. 🙏
  • In a similar way, my phone was unable to use GPS system on all apps. The solution was the follow next steps (according to customer care Nokia, via online chat):
    1. Settings > apps & notifications > see all apps > Options (3 dots on the upper right corner) > Show system > Fused location > storage > Clear data and Clear cache

    2. Settings > apps & notifications > see all apps > Options (3 dots on the upper right corner) > Show system > Location services > storage > Clear data and Clear cache

    3. Press at the same time Power button and Volume UP button, release them when you feel a vibrate and see "Powered by Android" on the screen. This is a safe and quick way to reboot your device without losing or erasing any data.

    It works for me.
