GPS inaccuracy since beginning of May?
Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:

- Firmware Version:
- Rooted or not: No
- Frequency of Occurrence: Frequent

In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.
Since roughly the beginning of May, seemingly after a device update, I've had issues with GPS precision and accuracy. In the past, I was thrilled with how well the phone handled challenging circumstances, including Strava activity tracking through deep slot canyons (with strong track matching in both directions).
Now, I have major issues with tracking, which also extends to activities like using navigation in Google Maps: it sometimes hangs at an intersection and then I don't know how to proceed, being well past it. GPSTest will also show that it can't get a lock on location despite sattelites being all over the place.
Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks!
(here is a screenshot showing a failed Strava track as I walked down that street. You see that the track line jumps up and down and back and forth, when it should have just been a single, clean line to the right of the street.)
