Lenovo p2 gps response is very slow (used to work great)

2017-08-29, 15:50 PM

Nougat 7

Everytime i choese a place to go from Google map.  The indicator start as dot and stays like this for 2-5 Mins then change to arrow , sometimes it turns from arrow to dot randomly too and  there is a really big delay everytime i take turns left or right about 1 minute delay. 

 

The problem started like 2 weeks ago and it's really frustrating for me i really depend on gps for everything.

 

Btw 

Wlan scanning is on 

There is no data restrictions. 

Mode:high accuracy.

Hi Abdulaziz11,

 

Try to recalibrate the compass:

https://support.google.com/maps/answer/2839911?visit_id=1-636397817531808918-1064703771&rd=1&co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid&oco=1

Calibrate your compass
If your blue dot's beam is wide or pointing in the wrong direction, you’ll need to calibrate your compass.

Open the Google Maps app Google Maps.
Make a figure 8 until your compass is calibrated. You should only have to do this a few times.
The beam should become narrow and point in the right direction.

If it is not calibrated, the phone "not knows" where are you heading (the blue dot not changing to the arrow).

 

Regards.

For me it is working as expected:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4sStWz2zBLhR2NWSzNiMXRVMjg/view

 

Yesterday when I opened the Google Maps and tried to reproduce the issue, first it was long time while "the dot is changed to arrow" , but after this the app created a popup message to recommend calibrate the compass.
Since the calibration it works fast.

 

Maybe you should try to clear the cache and data of Google Maps:
Settings > Apps > Maps > Storage >> Clear data & Clear cache


Regards.
