I had an update around 7-8 days ago btw that was also around the 274mb mark, but it was just December's security update (1 December - C7000ZHU2APL2) & didn't resolve the GPS issue which is why afterwards I started looking on forums for solutions as I called Samsung Hong Kong for support and they were absolutely useless and also ignored my emails!
IÂ’d already found the C7Â’s ROM on the Internet & was going to reinstall the software but fortunately I didnÂ’t have to as your tip resolved my GPS issues. It wouldÂ’ve been a lot easier for me to reinstall the software than send the phone back to Hong Kong where I bought it in December.
Thanks again! ;-)

It's got a built-in function which lets you reset GPS data and download new one. I have experienced zero GPS problems this last week. Hopefully you will not, either!
Also, I have received another software update around 274MB. Samsung may have included some update regarding this issue in this package. But I am hesitant to install it lest it messes up something as I am perfectly happy with my device as it is. If anyone knows the contents of the update, please let us know or if you just share your experience with the update, I appreciate any kind of info, too! Thanks in advance. :)
it must be snapdragon 626 2.2 ghz newer than snapdargon 625 2.0 ghz on the C7

Fingers crossed it stays that way! Thanks mate!
I don't have quick notification toggles unless I install good luck (system UI) .. I don't know why.

I've been having to resort to the in car Satnav which I generally only use when driving abroad, for the convenience. Was there a particular GPS app you used?

I am writing this to help someone else who might experience the same problem. First of all, there is nothing wrong with GPS, it is not broken. The problem is with the outdated GPS data(?). You can download a software from Google Play that could reset GPS data and download new one over the internet. And voila! The problem is fixed. Hope this helps somebody.
And btw, this phone is gorgeous! Using it for two months now. Everything is buttery smooth to the point I have never experienced any slowdown or lags whatsoever, no overheating even over extensive periods of Pokemon Go gameplay (which used to toast my old G2), through the roof battery life (about 6 hours of Go gameplay) and a beautiful bright screen (looking from side angles distort the color btw). Camera is really good but not that great. If you have steady hands, you can capture some great shots though.
And yes, I still play and enjoy Pokemon Go! :)

Anonymous, 12 Jan 2017Wich one is better Samsung C7 or asus zenfone 3 ze552kl?In my opinion, it is still samsung c7 to be better than asus zc552kl in its overall features. However, samsung should really address the overheating of its phones' batteries.

Are there anyone who has been experiencing GPS problems lately? Mine was fine until about 10 days ago, but since then GPS has been a mess. It starts out pretty good, locking at a location pretty close to where I actually am, then drifts away slowly or sometimes violently to some random place. I read that it might be due to a leap second bug or something but sadly can't find anything on the web which leads to believe it is actually not the case. If anyone has similar issues, please respond so that I can know whether it is a common problem or mine is a faulty unit.
