    Hi guys,

    When I tried to used my S4 as GPS nav, it NEVER locked. Somehow the GPS is broken, when I tried to test it, it can only find one satellite. And sometimes when I turn on the GPS, the GPS icon started to blink when I wasn't at any map/gps app.

    It can only my general area, that's because of the mobile network was also turn on, high accuracy mode

    Just fyi, the GPS never worked since I got it.

    So do you think that I have a bad GPS?

    Thanks.guys

    It sounds like a bad GPS to me.

    Yeah, I tried those. It's not working. (That was after I did a factory reset)

    Have you tried it while flying at high altitude? Maybe if you got closer to the satellites it would help. ;)
