Dear Redmi Note 7 Users,

I have recently received quite a lot of complains that the GPS on the Redmi Note 7 is malfunctioning, this is probably due to the software problem on MIUI. I have tried to explore it and I was able to find a quick solution to your problem.

Please follow the guide for me to walk you thru this problem until the next update to fix your problem.

I have full tested this on Waze and Grab App which both are quite GPS dependent to work properly.

Such a headache, No GPS while navigating!



Step 1 Go to Settings\Dual Apps


2.jpg



Step 2 Turn on Google Services



3.jpg



Step 3 Turn on for the app that you like to fix the No GPS Bug, in my case its Waze



4.jpg



Step 4 Go to Security App



5.jpg



Step 5 Click the Battery Icon



6.jpg



Step 6 Click the settings of the App Battery Saver



7.jpg



Step 7 Click Waze



8.jpg



Step 8 Click No Restriction



9.jpg



Step 9 Select the Dual App (in my case its Waze)



10.jpg



Step 10 Dont forget to turn on the GPS of your phone, and best to start it outside of the house for better satellite reception, in my case, Waze is working fine now.

Thanks for reading, hope it helps.

strange that Dual Apps can fix the GPS...
in my case, this app always helps to fix any GPS problem as long as it itsn't hardware: https://play.google.com/store/ap ... ab.gpsfix&hl=en

I'm using Google Maps and it doesn't show up in the "Dual Apps" list, so I can't try the above.

My Problem: When trying to navigate using Google Maps, GPS signal is lost immediately.
My fix: When switching "Preferred network type" to "Prefer 3G" (instead of  "Prefer LTE") GPS tracking works fine in Google Maps.

Has anyone else seen this?
Is there a way to fix this so I can use LTE network while navigating?

Seems to me that your fix works because your "Dual-ed app" can only use 3G....
