Note 20 Ultra 5G working great for around 9 months then after a decent sized update, about 900Mb, the GPS signal has gone shocking.
I installed a GPS status monitor app and could see it jumping up and down on available satellites and how many it had locked onto including at times not finding any!
I put an old Note 8 at the side and that was fine.
Anyone else having similar issues?

Running the same phone here, and after several updates everything is working fine 🤞 I always flush the cache after any updates, I would surgest you try that and then open Samsung members and check your location accuracy. 🍀

@Yanster: Try restarting your Note 20 Ultra, then head to Settings > Location > Improve Accuracy, and toggle on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Scanning. Go back, and make sure that Google Location Accuracy, and Google Location Sharing are both toggled on. Let me know if this helps.

Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby / Power key. Once the Android Recovery screen comes up, release the buttons. Use the Volume Down button until you are highlighting 'Wipe cache

Hi @ARTTHIBO, The path may have changed since AndrewL posted. Just checked on my UK S10 (on One UI 4.1/Android 12), and it's in Settings > Location > Location services.

This is ridiculous, spend this much money on a SAMSUNG PHONE, buy a Drone and can't fly the ***** thing because of this supposed to be wonderful phone.

SAMSUNG get off your A** and fix it, not tomorrow. 

I spent to much money for you to think, "O'wwe don't know, send screenshot" move
