Ever since i updated to iOS 5, navigation apps like Sygic and Nagignon are reporting that they are unable to get GPS signal. These apps were working just fine before the update.

 

Even other apps like Foursquare and Gowalla are completely off ... the only thing that seems to be working is Maps but its not able to identify current location correctly.

 

Its rather frustrating to see paid apps especially Sygic not working ...


iPhone 4, iOS 5

    I have the same problem on my iPhone 3GS (baseband 05.16.05). Before IOS5, no problems at all, after the upgrade tot iOS5, no GPS anymore. The strange part is, that the iPhone3GS of my wife does have GPS after update to iOS5, even with the same baseband (05.16.05).

     

    Hopefully Apple has a sollution....

    Yip, same problem here... My phone says "Poor GPS" while my wife's phone shows a strong signal. It used to work fine, but since the upgrade the GPS is as good as broken.

     

    Is there a way to go back to iOS 4.3? I tried to restore a backup, but that just restore applications and settings, not the iOS version.

    +1

     

    Same here, did the ios5 upgrade and now none of my GPS / satnav related apps are functioning properly.

     

    Have done all sorts of resets, combinations and so on.

     

    Very annoyed, and I also want to go back to 4.3.

    I have the same problem on my iPhone 3GS model:A1303 (baseband 05.16.05). Before IOS5, no problems at all, after the upgrade to iOS5, GPS signal is weak. It seems, that application which use GPS jumping from Satelite GPS to Basestation location. All navigation application are out of serios function. On another iPhone 4 with iOS 5 no problem.

    Try Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

    Reset does not fix the problem.

    Which reset did you do?  Reset ≠ Reset Network Settings

    I've been in touch with Navigon because if issues with iOS 5. They are aware and preparing an update. I think all the gps apps are having issues. Some minor, others more annoying.

  • 12. Re: GPS Not Working in iOS5

    Yes I did a network reset and it also did not fix the issue. I have reinstalled the app, but no solution. Also check out the gps info, it gives the coordinates. But the navigation software can't locate the location. Hard to tell what is causing this, if there was a problem in the chip, then gps info wouldn't give the location. If this software can get th location, why can't navigation ones.

    I don't think it is a problem of any navigation apps. I don't have any navigation apps on it, just the ordinary MAPS APP which is standard installed on the iPhone. It only shows the location based on Wifi and 3G location, but when i turn these of, no location is even found (does this happen with you guys to?). Isn't it that when MAPS finds a GPS location, the blue dot starts to blink? or does it show a pin of the location?

     

    I just have a blue dot with a circle around it which is small when i am on wifi and large when i am on 3G (location by antenna).

     

    Is there a way to read the GPS coordinates in iOS5?

     

    Does anyone know if this is already reported to Apple? I was hoping that iOS5.01 was having a fix...but until know there is no bugfix in this update so far....
