Huawei P20 Pro with Locus
« on: June 13, 2018, 18:38:23 »
Hi,
I´m thinking about buying a Huawei P20 Pro, but one of my main criterias would be that the GPS runs smoothly. So if anyone here is already using a P20 Pro I´d be very grateful if you could answer a few questions:
1) How good is the GPS accuracy?
2) Does the P20 Pro support Galileo? I googled this one and found very contradictory statements.
3) Any known GPS / Locus issues with the P20 Pro?

Thanks Menion,
I´ve already read that thread, but was hoping that I could reproduce Patrick´s solution, who posted that it worked for him after the latest huawei patch. I do admit though, that it would be a bit of a worry to know that the next patch could break locus functionality again.
So the next hope is that you´ll find a way to fix the problem ;-)
But it would all be no good anyway, if the GPS on the P20 Pro had other issues. The only review I could find online (on notebookcheck.com) was not too positive about the GPS. But I don´t like to rely on just one source. So maybe someone here can pass on his/her experience with the P20 Pro...?
