Has anyone experienced jumpy GPS using the Galaxy A54? I took a 1.8 mile walk this afternoon and my phone said I had gone 2.65 miles. Affects Strava and Pacer apps equally. I'm wondering if I should return the phone as accurate GPS is essential.

I don't use those apps, but use Google fit that maps my walks and Google maps for driving which seem accurate enough. Have you also checked that the apps you use are set for precise location.

I know Strava is unreliable but and according to some reviews on Play Store it can be inaccurate.

I have checked the location setup. Precise location is on. I turned off the options for using WiFi and Bluetooth to add accuracy,because that seemed to be making the problem worse.

In the Samsung members app you can also use the phone diagnostics to check the location accuracy along with Bluetooth and WiFi etc.

My first and now my replacement A54 have the same problem.  Erratic and unreliable location services/GPS.

It is not the Apps installed.  I did a factory reset and the problem still persists.  I did a simultaneous side by side with the S9 it replaced with the same factory installed google maps app; and the S9 found the location immediately, the A54 eventually found it and then wandered off to multiple different locations.
