GPS doesn´t work on FP Open OS

I’m not sure about this app, but there are some apps that look for Google Location Services and won’t consider non-Google location providers of any kind. If this is the case, then you may need to install microG (fakes Google) or Open GAPPS (minimalist Google) on your FP Open OS so it can run.

Test your GPS with SatStat, if it works then you have confirmation that the GPS is playing by the book. In this case, most surely it’s the app that’s hooked into Google’s Kool-Aid.

Downloaded SatStat nothing happens apart from CPU becoming very hot and battery levels dropping quickly… :frowning_face:

In location settings, is your phone clearly on “Device only” mode? If it is, on the first screen of SatStat, don’t you see any dot representing satellite locks, like below? And does the “pin” icon appear on the right side of the taskbar?
