GPS/Location functionality not working with Android apps.
I have experienced this issue with Here WeGo, Magic Earth, and Sportstracker.
With Here WeGo and Magic Earth the app freezes after a few seconds. If the Location permission is turned off from within Android Apps Settings then the app will open and run properly (though without any GPS/Location information) allowing you to pinch and zoom, move around the maps, select routes and find travel times, road conditions etc.
In the case of Sportstracker the app freezes or just continually waits for a GPS signal.
Once the Android app freezes Android App Support needs to be restarted before any Android apps will function.
I use GPS Info to ascertain that I have a valid GPS signal so I know the issue isn’t related to poor GPS coverage.
Native apps like Pure Maps and Laufhelden can access the Location and run as they are intended to.
- Open any Android app that relies on a GPS signal
Get navigation guidance or be able to track sporting activities.
Android apps requiring GPS/Location services freeze and until that app is closed and Android App Support is re-started no other Android app will work
