Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

I have the same issue with the Global software
"K10 Note" on a Z6 Lite.
I have tried GPS Test, GPS Status, TomTom, GPS Reset,Waze, OziExplorer: None get a GPS Fix.
However GoogleMaps ,Waze , My GPS Location do get a GPS fix.
I think the Global software is a Frankenstein and will give Lenovo a bad name. I also dont seem to get OTA updates.
I bought mine from Ali Lenovo Global Store.
Their support is or acts dumb.

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

Since some GPS Apps can, and some cannot get a GPS Location fix, I assume it is an issue with the software interface, not the Hardware.

The hope is that Lenovo will  ultimately release a proper Global version.

My concern is if this "Global K10 Note" has the means to get software fixes/updates.

There is a "System Updates" in Settings, but this seems to only update the proprietary User Interface (now at 11.0.014ST)

Anyone knowledgeable shed some light on this?

Does the original Chinese/English ROM properly get GPS fixes?

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

appearently you guys have something didnt understand , the fix on some apps is not actually a FIX , 

 

For example Google Maps , i get a fix on it but the location is not true nither the navigation works .

 

how did i know , Open GPS Status and Tools , click on top left of the screen to make the menu appear , you have will see location soruce , change it to Fused 

 

you will get fix for an instant and disappear

 

 

this is what happening with me can anyone confirm anythings else.

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

its still not fixed , we are waiting response.

 

 

i think you saw the word Fix and thought it got fixed , fixed in GPS means it locked to a locatiom and a satellite .

Re: Lenovo Z6 Lite GPS not locking

I reported this problem to Ali Lenovo Global Store:
they finally acknowledged the problem with GPS not working and responded:
"okay,we wil feedback it."
Whatever that means. In the meantime I will enter a Dispute with AliExpress.
