Hi Folks, I know this has been asked time and time again since the KitKat release, but, does anyone know when they are going to fix this GPS issue? I went to Boston this weekend and almost ended up in an accident because the GPS wouldn't lock properly and it was giving me incorrect directions.
I love this phone, but it almost ended up out my window as I got lost because of it. WHEN will Sprint release a fix for the very KNOWN GPS issue? If it is not going to be soon, I want to be able to replace it with something that DOES work. I pay almost 300 bucks a month for my phones, and it is pretty sad that I'm almost killed because someone screwed up the phone's ability to have a working GPS.
Again, the device will get fixed by LG under warranty. It would not have cost Sprint anything to help with getting my device fixed. To make the process easier, other than just saying "Well, you haven't been giving us $11 a month so we can't do anything for you. Good luck dealing with LG." I mean, you'd think that being a customer for close to 10 years would mean something. But fine, OK, I get it, no insurance means no fix.
a class action lawsuit against sprint for a update that is pushed from LG? their phone their issue to fix..all sprint can do is work with them to try and get it resolved..but its still up to LG to actually get it done
The GPS issue exists because of the upgrade to 4.4, because not only did it happen on my LG G2, but also my Note 2.
Hopefully, others with the same problem can get it fixed, I gave up, sold the G2 and got a G3. Although bigger than the G2, it works well. Oh and the GPS works.
lol yah i kind of figured..wont be the first nor last time a OTA botches something up with a device lol.
correct..the other carriers use the same people..
I hear you. I have the exact same Issue. I was on a work trip, and the GPS was working pretty good. While on travel, an update was pushed to my phone, immediately after that the GPS was crap. When you are in a different state that you are not familiar with all that well, it's extremely frustrating.
Continuously looses GPS signal within google maps. I've tried different map programs such as waze, scout, etc. I've tried GPS status and tool.
I've had my wives iphone and my phone both do GPS navigation side by side, and never once did my wives iphone loose GPS signal.
It's extremely frustrating issue. I'm at the point where I'm just going to switch over to t-mobile just so I can get a different type of phone, and let T-mobile pay to break my contract. Never again will I get an LG.
