Have the same problem with my A52S 5G. Reboot temporarily fixes it. Factory reset didn't work 😞

I'm having the same issues.  after a couple of hours GPS becomes unavailable so have to reboot.  Then it works.  Next time I use an app that needs GPS, it's unavailable again and another reboot..  It's getting really annoying now!!  Tried samsung chat but t replicate the issue, they would need to wait a couple of hours until the GPS went down again!  as far as they were concerned, the GPS was working (I had just rebooted! 🙄)  Told me I could contact Samsung shop (bought direct) to discus a replacement unit but cant for the life of me find anyway of contacting them to sort!!

 

Looks to me like the GPS module is going to sleep and then wont wake up again when polled!  either that or the GPS module is FUBAR..  either way, right now the device isn't fit for purpose!

I had some intermitted "GPS signal lost" while driving with my S22+ too.
It came back by itself... but is the first phone that does that. My previous S9, S10, S20, S21+ never did that.

Someone over in reddit said they solved the issue by removing Google maps from auto and deep sleep and set permissions to always allow for gps
