Title:

How to fix google pixel gps not working?

Text:

Recently I bought a used google pixel where I replaced the battery and I was happy with it. Today I went to a field where there is no WiFi and cellular. My last phone got a GPS 3D fix here in seconds and this one spent 10 minutes and didn’t connect to a single satellite. I downloaded GPS test and it shows a lot of satellites in view and zero in use. The google one on one support chat suggested a few things that I tried but it didn’t help so they recommended to return the phone for a replacement but the problem with this is 1st I’m not in the US, 2nd It’s a used phone so I don’t have anything else than the device itself.  So is there any hardware or software solution I should try?

Things I tried:

Resetting to factory settings / wiping phone.

Not opening dev options.

Resetting GPS data.

Changing high accuracy location settings.
