The GPS lock issue is said to be difficulty locking into a user's location.

This new issue is just the latest of what seems to be a slowly expanding list of complaints about the Galaxy S20 phones. Most users claim GPS lock is an issue with Waze while some others are reporting that Google Maps locks onto GPS signal without problem.

In a few cases, turning off 5G and using LTE exclusively has fixed the issue entirely, or made it a bit better, according to a report by GSMArena.
