Thanks @OhneZ for your help, i tried this configuration, nothing is happening after one hour … i’m still keeping 0/0 satellite.
I am sorry but i’m reading the topic and i must say something about all of this …
Firstly i am not going to count clouds and birds in the sky before enabling a GPS, we are in 2021 and most of devices with GPS (even cheap products) are working with or without clear sky, to me it’s like telling me “with Sailfish OS the phone become a sundial so wait for the sun to get the time on your phone”.
To me there is a difference between a prototype on which we do experiments and improvements and a sold functionnal product that fits daily life needs. Why Jolla is selling a licence for this device and present it as “supported device” ? I paid a licence, if we pay for a supported device, we expect to get something reliable and not a prototype.
Secondly i am not going to wait 5 or 30 minutes to start my GPS like starting an old car before taking the road, … this is not a solution, this is not compatible with daily life, imagine each time you need location you have to wait and loose time … we are in 2021 ! please ! what is the next step ? someone is going to strap a compass on the screen to get the north ? or i don’t know … maybe we could get a proper fix for a paid product ?
I’m completely agree with @AlanBreen and other people on this topic. I’m repeating it but we paid a licence for a “supported device” and i see a topic opened for two years without an official fix. It’s clearly false advertising and XA2 should be removed from supported device list after 10 month with the same issue.
This issue with GPS wasn’t properly presented on the website and should be, because i lost money by choosing to buy an XA2 and a licence instead of a classic Androïd phone.
People like me should get a refund for the licence because GPS is a critical feature on a smartphone.
Sorry but i’m very disappointed about my first experience with Sailfish OS.
What else could i do ? Maybe a reinstall ? Is it possible to restore the original Android ROM ?
