Yoga 10 (B8000-F): GPS is slow in finding my location


I own a Yoga Tablet 10" (Lenovo B8000F). My problem with the tablet is that after accessing the GPS, I notice that the tablet is taking a while before it can lock to my location or sometimes it just does not find my location at all.


Is there a fix?


If it is a locking location issue, you are recommended to try downloading an app called "GPS status and Tool Box" from the Google Play Store. It helps to lock your location faster.


Once downloaded, try updating the AGPS. This should assist with getting back your GPS to work properly again.

I have the same problem as mehdi18k with yoga 2 8" LTE. None of the GPS tools works and no AGPS update either. The device will not lock on any of the sattelites.
