Help Post Lollipop - No GPS signal


May 12, 2015
I updated my Z3 compact to Lollipop to 5.0.2 two weeks ago and noticed issues with tracking apps like Strava, Wahoo Fitness and my fitness pal. After doing some digging around it turns our that I cant get GPS lock on satellites. I turned the location setting to GPS only and went into Google maps, it was unable to locate me without wifi and signal.

I tried the built in diagnostics on the phone to check the GPS and it runs for a while before saying 'Test Failed'

I have downloaded GPS test which shows I can see satellites but it will not fix to any of them. I have restarted it, re downloaded apps, cleared the AGPS and updated the AGPS but to no avail.

Has this happened to anyone else? is there a fix to this?
