After updating to Android 9.0, GPS no longer works

Google maps and waze are working fine. Tried reinstalling the game, still GPS not moving. Tried clearing cache and restarting my phone, still the same.

Did you try to change your GPS accuracy? From high to GPS only for example

Hey, @Laurence_Jon_Isagan, I’m sorry to hear that your GPS is giving you trouble ever since you updated to Android 9.0! Although I’m not sure exactly what might be causing this, our support team would be glad to help you troubleshoot this and get you back to collecting DNA; reach out to them at, and if you can remember to include your support key in the email that would help speed up the process.
