    How long did you wait when using any of the GPS apps?

    well got so fed up with this problem that I bought another Samsung 2 same LTE model, and god man its doing the same thing as my other one, theres something I,m downloading when syncing with google account I think as it was working to start with then after downloading all my apps its staed doing it again. I like the note 2 I got lots of spare batteries and things to go with it so don't really want to upgrade, I wonder if rooting it might help? what do you think?

    seems this is happening to the note 4 as well so upgrading the phone wont do any good either. so is this the end of the note phone as we know it if we want to use GPS??
