  • Hi @cheng_5931,

    I will move your thread to the correct section in ROG 5 ;)

    Regarding you GPS issue, you could try troubleshooting the following steps:

    ·        Make sure that Google Maps / Waze has location permissions set to 'Allow all the time'.

    ·        Make sure Google Location Accuracy is enabled. (Settings -> Location)

    ·        Clear cache files system-wide. (Settings -> Advanced -> Mobile manager -> Cleanup)

    ·        Clear the cache of the LocationServices system app.

    ·        Make sure both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth scanning is enabled in Location settings.

    ·        If none of the steps above improve GPS performance and you haven't performed a factory reset, please do so.
