Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

I made a Youtube of the GPS problem on my Lenovo Z6 Lite/Youth:

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

Here is the answer from AliExpress Lenovo Global Store:

 

"dear friend,we check several phones of Z6 lite. 
 
the GPS can be used normally. 
 
maybe the app you use to test is not suitable to this phone. 
 
can you pls try to use the GPS app on the phone which have installed."
 
This is frustrating, They seem to be unwilling to test the Aps clearly identified as not working. Like:
Tomtom, Waze, GPS Test, GPS Status,..

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

try to make them understand ,

 

even if the app they try worked for at launch , they should try to move while the app is open and see if the location moved with them . GMaps works like this for me 

 

It gets a fix as soon as i open the app , but if i tried navigation or i moved without making anything . my location in the app doesnt move with me at all .

 

and this can be proven by Gps Tools and Status if u changed location soruce to Fuzed

 

u get an instant fix for a moment and u lose it.

 

please try to make them read this letter xD

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

This is is my input to AliExpress Lenovo Global Store:

"Try the built-in Google Maps (GMaps):

you get an initial correct GPS position. But if you move your position, the GPS position is NOT updated. You cannot Navigate to a new Destination. The basic problem is that the Z6Lite Global does not update the GPS location. Harald(BSEE) "
 
Lets see what the response will be.

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

I also gave them the Link to this Forum.

Sadly my impression is that they try to find excuses, rather than to reproduce and fix the problem.

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

Hi. The store from china from which i bought my z6 lite communicated with me. Their advise was to download the China ROM. It appears that the GPS issue is brought about by the unofficial global ROM (LENOVO have not officially launched global edition of z6 lite) ours is "tampered" Global Rom.

 

Solution:

1) Dowload and install the official China Rom (hope theres english language in it (can somebody ask lenovo)).

 

2) Wait for lenovo to launch global rom of z6 lite (hoping that they will soon) and install it.

 

In the meantime, enjoy z6 lite without gps. My temporary solution is to purchase another different brand device with official global rom.

 

Best regards.
