I believe it did not work on my set, rather some of the clips on the back cover broke while taking it off

THANK YOU THANK YOU! Gps locks in seconds and stays locked instead of locking then unlocking after 2 minutes like before. Big ups!

Vielen Dank, GPS funktioniert bei mir wieder richtig gut. Einer der 3 Kontakte war gut verklebt. Er musste mit einem Teppichmesser unterschnitten werden, was äusserste Vorsicht erfordert.

GPS bug I encountered: being from time to time located 50m northward (upsetting when the mains highways are E-W). Working great for the moment :-)

My GPS had been sporadic ever since Pokemon Go launched (never used it much before then). Some days weren't bad, other days I couldn't get a stable enough signal to do much of anything.

After venting my frustrations a bit on the phone, the back cover came slightly loose in one corner, and I recalled this DIY fix, tried it out, and thus far the GPS has been more stable/accurate than it EVER was.

Hopefully this fix lasts. I was beginning to compare features on new (0-dollar) phones. it was starting to give me a headache figuring out what features I could live without, and what was/wasn't an upgrade... (Probably going to need to upgrade soon anyway, as the OS isn't being updated for this model)
