Hello. I've had the phone for a few days now I have a problem I've never had before with any phone. I have the AXS app and the burger king app that require my location and it fails to get my location data. GPS is on, improved accuracy is on, location permission for both apps checked...how do I fix this?

Hi @Coz 

 

Does location data work OK generally with your phone ? 

If so try clearing the cache and data of the specific app via Settings,  Apps, Choose the app, Storage, Clear Cache and Data.

Also while in that section of the apps look at the permissions of the app.


Current Phone > Samsung Z Fold³ 5G. > Software : Android 12 ~ Samsung One Ui 4.

Well my Google maps app works, location is permitted within the app. 

Have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app to no avail.

I'm also having GPS trouble, my app for work to clock in requires you to be within the building. Ever since I go this phone It rarely works. It worked perfect on my OnePlus 8 Pro. I've cleared cache, uninstalled, rebooted, re-downloaded. turned on and off improve accuracy with wi-fi scanning and bluetooth scanning. Nothing works. I'm getting very frustrated.

I am having the same problem on random apps and the Samsung Internet browser. Location is not working.

Still no luck with this. Its certain apps only that cannot get location access, although these apps are working fine on other devices. Apps that don't work are certain weather apps, burger king app, AXS app. We need an update on this.

It's  hardware . App works fine..  my zfolds GPS looses signal then a few minutes after ..its on ..then off. Cache can't possibly be the issue. It's a cheap GPS.
