    This also applies to me. I updated with the OTA A3003_28_170821 to 4.1.7 around a week ago and ever since my GPS is really poor. I am an Ingress player and so accurate and quick GPS is the primary reason for the phone and as such it is now almost useless. Please find a fix as soon as possible. Many thanks. Tony

    Just as an update, I have located elsewhere that a possible workaround is to set location accuracy to "Device Only". This does appear to improve things greatly.

    It isn't just you. This EXACT problem is happening to me too, and it only started after the last update.

    My GPS was excellent before this update.

    I also face the same issue. looks like setting device location settings to device only is a workaround for now. Please fix it asap

    Same issue here. It takes several minutes to sync. It's very annoying and hard to find an explanation for such a big bug. OP should fix it urgently.

    UPDATE (21/10/2017):

    I opened a ticket, and they asked me to do the basic things, and (obviously) they didn't work. In the meantime a new release came out ("bug fixes"). It worked for a couple of days and then the symptoms came back. Now I have an appointment to do a remote session with a Tier 2 support technician to take the phone OS to the last version where the GPS worked properly. Let's see what happens?

    Don't expect me to buy a new OP in the future. I'm sorry.

    I have had this issue with the OP5 from the latest two updates now. The last one though completely screwed the GPS stability. I'm an ingress player also and this is uber frustrating for me. Ordered a flagship phone on launch day, paid full price and the software keeps getting things worse instead of fixing them! Extremely upset!!

    Glad to see it's not just my OnePlus 3 experiencing issues with GPS after the last couple of OTA updates, but also very frustrating. I rely on GPS for driving directions, location sharing with family, etc. I hope we see a patch for this soon!

    Hello. I had the exact same problem. Try GPS settings: mode: then switch to Device only,

    This Worked for me. (so far) I hope it stays fixed. It's terrible not to have GPS.

    GPS is broken here as well. Just tried to sideload Open beta 17... hope that helps.
    If it doesn't I'll buy a different phone ASAP and never look back.
    This reminds me of NFC issues with the One I had. It was always a gamble. After an update first thing I checked whether they broke it again or not...
