Published

on

Apple Watch and iPhone users after updating their devices to the latest operating system are facing GPS map issue with the activity that no routes recorded in maps for activity. The GPS activity is not getting recorded. It seems to be a bug in the latest watch 0S7 or iOS 14 as No GPS/route information is saved with the Activity/Fitness App or in Health App of iPhone.




After doing a  each health activity when iPhone users checked the Fitness and Health apps,there was no route on the map but only the starting point is shown in the Fitness App which is very strange. The GPS data for the activity is missing in the fitness app but all other metrics for the activity like distance, elevation gain are shown correctly. Now a easy bug for a iPhone users when Apple watch and iphone only recorded a starting point for GPS route.

Below are the two major issue:

  • There is no GPS map data for Activity shown in Apple Watch and iPhone and location is not getting recorded in Activity/ Fitness app
  • The workouts aren’t synced with the fitness app anymore.
  • Sometimes the correct data is not getting recorded. Eg only half of the steps are counted by iPhone health app and Apple Watch.
