    I have an iPhone 5s and recently I've noticed that the gps isn't working correctly, when I've got wifi its work perfectly but when i try and use the navigation software on maps my location is slightly out and doesn't recognise me being on the road and continually locating which makes it useless. I've also tried google maps and same problem.

    I have recently changed my lock/power button and consequently had my phone to pieces is there anything i could of damaged or not put back properly that could affect the gps?

    i have reset network and location settings and still no improvement

    any thoughts?

    Thanks

    It's possible your DIY repair has caused something to go awry... Not sure what you can do to fix short of disassembly...and careful reassembly and see if the issue resolves.

    The 8.3 update has a glitch in the operating system it's preventing certain Bluetooth GPS receivers from transmitting data properly to apps in iOS devices. I know my Garmin Glo Bluetooth GPS is not working with my apps after the update.

    Who else has this issue? If it were an OS bug, there would be others complaining. I haven't heard a soul mention it on the 4 iGadget forums I visit.

    When I read this happened after the latest iOS update I did a "hard" reset (press the home & power at the same time until Apple logo shows) and it looks like it is working now.

    Reading some of the information from the actual developers for the external GPS units, their checks and balances systems when testing on pre-release version of iOS firmware is not very encompassing, and many of them are now implementing better testing sequences to make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen again (or better put, doesn't fall through the cracks again without being noticed).

    Hopefully Apple will do the same thing on the other side of the fence.
