Asus ROG Phone 5 - No stable GPS Fix since 12.07.21

Hi! I'm on the latest firmware; since 12.07.2021, I cannot get a stable GPS Fix on my ROG Phone 5. Right now, I'm standing on the sea-coast; I calibrated my compass once again, I rebooted twice, but it can take about 5-10 minutes to fix, but even after that, it loses fixation, especially when I moving. I cannot use GPS map navigation during car ride anymore, so I have to use my wife's LG Velvet for that.

    87 satellites in view, but phone can connect to only from 2 to 17.

  • I have the exact same problem after upgrading software i July, have tried everything no fix, Is it possible to rollback the software. I really need GPS, had all ROG phones since they came out but now in thinking of going back to apple when 13 comes out - this is not good enough for me!

  • In the devellopeur options have you been annoyed about

    Force full GNSS measurements

    If so, deactivate the

    on some smartphones in Android 11, these manufacturers (the list is growing every day :)) GPS is partly bug

    the supplier of the GPS chipset provided a file "with sample values", they did not put their data in thinking that the file was to be used as is.

    Asus, google, motorola, onplus, samsung, sony, vivo, hdm (nokia), LGE

    This bug is in

    GnssAntennaInfo returns wrong values ​​on all Android 11 devices

    I don't know if Rog phone 5 is affected, GNSS is not enabled and GPS works fine (avg snr> 26 indoors 41 fix out of 78) on mine. i have two motorolas and one which has the bug but it does not affect the sensitivity, avg snr of 20.6 on the outside uncovered is very very low, it is as if you are in a forest under the trees or you have an NFC protective case.

    or there is an internal connection problem with the GPS antenna.

    To be sure go to another well cleared place (other than the seaside) you should have a signal> 40 on the green gps (fixed)

    Deleted before the history of google positions.

  • I have this problem too and really need functional GPS. Please ASUS do something about it! Thank you

    Press on top left and then hit the menu. Press on Manage A-GPS State and press on Download. You will need to be connected to the internet though.

    Once done, go outside and start your maps app, it should hopefully start to use the satellites.

    Thanks for the feedback - I don't have anything left to suggest. 😲

  • Make sure it's at least iphone 12 and not below that

  • @Disparo, Bjerfven, p.porsch


    The Rog Phone 5's GPS does not present any anomalies, it is even very powerful and precise even indoors.

    It does not include the bug of the wrong frequency (1227.6) GnssAntennaInfo, the carrier frequency of 1176.45 of the L5 and E5a signals is the correct one.

    log of GnssLogger (Status, 0,26,14,1,1,1176450048,35.50,100.00,64.00,0,1,1,25.5)


    Follow the directions below

    Notification bar

    Rental must always remain ON, it does not consume any energy. It's not like BT, NFC or WIFI, GPS consumes battery only when using apps that use it.




    Use Location (enable)

    App access to location

    - You must have at least "Google" Allow all the time, at least for this test, after which you are free to put Deny or others and see for yourself the good / bad functioning of your GPS. There are only reasons for your GPS problems, a hardware failure (unlikely), a lack of authorization (I bet my shirt)

    Google Location History (Enable) Click (Google Account)

    Manage History (click) Delete All Location History (return parameter location)

    Google Location Accuracy (enable)

    Wifi and Bluetooh scanning (click), Wi-FI scanning (Enable), BT (disable)

    Return parameters


    Developer Options

    Debugging Section

    - Select mock location app (Must of course is EMPTY)

    - Force full GNSS measurements (Enable)


    GPS TEST Chartcross Limited

    Three vertical dots, top right, AGPS, Clear and Update

    Wait a few seconds for the fix, all visible GPS will take about 5 min

    Other Download

    GPSTest barbeauDev to see the precise location like my screen

    These 2 screens are the result of tests carried out in bad conditions, inside the house.

  • Changed my mind and bought another one so I can send this on repair!
