iPhone 6 GPS not working

Hi,

I have an iPhone 6 and suddenly the gps function stopped working.

If I turn on my TomTom gps it shows "Poor GPS Reception". Sometimes my location is found for a minute and then again it's gone. I've changed the plastic antenna on top of the iPhone without any result.

Is there anything more i can do? I'm pretty sure that it's a hardware malfunction because i did everything i could with the software.

Thx for your help

Hello mattis, before touting hardware try to fix by software, have you update your phone to ios9?

Yes, as I said in previous post, I did everything I could with the software. Restore, update, dfu, reset network settings, ...

See this thread for the fix!

GPS & Bluetooth work sporadically.

I discovered a crude solution. Ive noticed that because of wear and tear, my iPhone 6 "sandwich" is a little loose. There is some play on how the screem is attached to the body. Whenever my gps or Bluetooth is weak, i press on the screen to "compress" the phone. Boom. Gps signal restored.

If you restored your network settings and checked all the hardware then you have no more options left. Mine was swapped by Apple under warranty

For me - replacement of "WiFi Antenna Signal Flex Cable Ribbon " increased significantly wifi and gps sensitivity.
