Samsung Galaxy S20 location is displayed incorrectly - Update AGPS

 The Samsung Galaxy S20 is equipped with a GPS receiver, with which it is possible to determine your position to within a few meters. This is especially necessary for apps like "Maps", "Outdooractive", "Pokemon Go" etc.


If you find out that the GPS location of your Samsung Galaxy S20 does not work correctly, it makes sense to update the AGPS data on your smartphone.

What is AGPS data?

AGPS stands for Assisted GPS. By using this resource, the GPS receiver in the smartphone is able to receive information from network resources to support satellite positioning.

This means that the AGPS data must first be updated via a data network, be it mobile or via W-Lan. Then these data can be used to improve the GPS positioning.
