Same issues in my note 3. Gps wont lock in position. My note 1 and 2 has no problem w gps fix which in fact that these phones have lower specs than the note 3. Ive send the phone to samsung FOUR times for warranty but nothings change.
I use the navigation for work as an all in one device. But without the simcard, this high end Samsung note 3 is useless for me. I think all of the Samsung note 3 in Rogers hasthis problem. Just imagine, 4x I returned it for repair, they even replaced it w a new one but still same issue.
How often do we use our navigation? Do they know that phones can be use as a standalone gps navigation without data plans? Most people use the maps for check in in fb etc. We need the location set by gps in order to use the map effectively
