    I have an iPhone 6 running 9.1, and my GPS is not locating. I've reset network settings, done a hard reset, and toggled on and of location services. I can get the GPS to temporarily work after these different attempts, but it's short lived. It quickly goes back to no longer being able to determine my location. This is happening in numerous apps (Apple Maps, Google Maps, Golf GPS apps, Runkeeper, etc)

    I've seen some comments on apple discussion forums with people having similar issues, but no solutions. Has anyone here had this problem and discovered a solution?

    Is wifi enabled? I usually get much better accuracy with it on.

    Yep. I've tried toggling it off to see if that helped, but no difference.

    Your GPS module is dead, had the same problem with iphone 5, exchanged it in Apple store

    Yup, that would be my guess. You might try a restore as new, but I would bet that it is hardware related.

    If it is the same problem I had, it only worked with 4g turned off. For some reason it works with 3g. Apple fixed it in ios 9.2 beta 4.

    That would be awesome. Really hoping this is the case. I'll try it out on 3G

    Edit: tried this tonight and it worked with no issues on 3G. Thanks for the help! Hoping 9.2 will solve this for me.

    the 3G attempt worked the first time, but then quit working. I downloaded the beta 9.2 beta 4, but with no luck. looks like it might be my gps module that has gone bad after all.
