Hello,

I am a French user of the Xiaomi Mi 4 LTE, with China Dev Rom from Xiaomi.eu.

I have a problem with my phone, I lose the GPS connection all the time ... It takes a long time to get a fix and then I lose it after a few minutes each time. I can't use Google Maps or Waze in my car...

In Paris, here is the fix gps I have:

Do you know how I can fix it?
Thanks !

I have a similar problem, when I try to using Google maps, so an app that needs the GPS, it doesn't work correctly and it is hard to use it in this conditions

Change your ntp servers in order to get more accurate fix.
Gps.conf located in root/etc folder

As an example y change this lines and works ok

NTP_SERVER=1.es.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.europe.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.europe.pool.ntp.org

How can I do it? Which is it the way in order to do it?
Do you know the dates for Italy?

Thank you.
You must reconfigure your gps.conf locsted in root/etc folder and change the ntp servers....

#Test
#NTP_SERVER=time.gpsonextra.net
#Asia
# NTP_SERVER=asia.pool.ntp.org
#Europe
NTP_SERVER=2.es.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=1.europe.pool.ntp.org
NTP_SERVER=3.europe.pool.ntp.org

For italy change ntp_server=

server 0.it.pool.ntp.org
server 1.it.pool.ntp.org
server 2.it.pool.ntp.org
server 3.it.pool.ntp.org


Use root explorer or similar app

Sure,uploading your new gps.conf you have duplicated ntpservers in two different lines and test server uncommented.

About getting without connection, is a mayor trouble in mi4 architecture, metal frame and gps colides.

Hope the new gps. conf solves some issues.

If you can edit gps conf, you have the root permission, download faster GPS from store and he work for you! It s very simple to use.

Hi. I am a Xiaomi Mi 4 user in India. I have faced the very same GPS issue in my device. I have tried all methods, like downloading a gps.conf for my country, rooting my device in order to replace the original gps.conf file with the new one etc.

Even after this, GPS still can't lock my position.

I have attached the gps.conf file that I'm using. Please verify the txt and let me know if there needs to be any correction.

Also, if you feel I have used a wrong gps.conf file or some lines are missing, please edit the text and upload here.

Thank you.

For India copy this in your gps.conf and restart

Very easy, i have done to my fone on China 7.5.3, it locates very well now. So, go to CH Play and install GPS Fix, open and Start Fixing, let it be done and your gps will be good at all :D. No need to replace gps.conf anymore.
