    Note 8 sprint GPS constantly breaking

    I have a note 8 I have an unlocked version and I have been having a constant problem with google maps. When I try to navigate to a place it will give me directions but in the turn by turn navigation it will often just stop tracking my current position and be stuck on an old position. Pressing back and then restarting the navigation will update my position. Sometimes that update will keep tracking me other time it will just be stuck at the new position. I tried doing a factory reset on the phone, uninstalling maps and reinstalling, clearing the cache, and taking out my microsd card. Nothing solves the problem. And the problem seems to happen more on certain routes but its hard to say for sure.

    So What I am trying to figure out here is, is my phone broken or is this all a symptom of sprints network migrations because all this started recently. But I took my phone into a sprint store twice and they couldnt help me. They tried setting the phone into lte/cdma mode as they said thats been helping other people with call quality.

    I dont want to buy a new phone just to find out its the network.

    I'm having the same issue but I have an note 8 sold by ATT on the ATT network. So it's not just a sprint issue. I am beginning to think it's an end of life issue built into the note 8.

    Try the handy GPS Test app. Phones do vary in their GPS capability. Some of my older models were lousy. You hear of variances even between same model phones.
