    Hello, i am new to this so please be nice.

    I have never used the gps on my phone before, its about 18 months old, and i wanted to use the app map my walk, and it cannot find a gps location. I have tried gps test app and that cannot find anything despite a friends phone finding 8 satellites in the area.

    When i put gps on, the little icon in the corner on the task bar flashes twice then stops. Then roughly 30 seconds later will flash twice again, and so on, never finding the location. My phone says there are no hardware updates. Recently my phone had to be fixed as the charger port went faulty, could this be causing the fault?
