I am also having the same issue and this has been resolved for other Verizon customers. What do we need to do to receive a fix??

My LG G5 GPS has stopped working most of the time.

First, make sure your phone date/time is set to

           Auto-date&time enabled,

           Auto-time zone enabled

Set your Location Mode to

           High accuracy (GPS and networks)

Download the application GPS Status

           Got to Manage A-GPS state

           Perform a Reset to clear cached data

           Perform a Download of the A-GPS XTRA Data  (gets assistance data)

Make sure you have unobstructed view of the sky and attempt to get a lock (4 Sats min).

Subsequent to this, the locks should be faster for you.

Good luck.

Hi,

I've done this fix multiple times. The problem still continues. The phone will lock after 2-3 minutes of attempting and then is constantly dropping location thereafter.

What do I do next?

Please help us on what we need to do to fix this GPS issue we are having on our LG G5 phones. I have 3 phones and really noticed the issue 6 months ago. I read in a previous post there are some devices that were manufactured in June 2016 and prior have a GPS gasket attachment defect. Can you please advise on how we can get this repaired?

Thank you in advance!
