    I'm a big fan of here drive I use it since my 520 days. When I upgraded to 730 I thought I will get a better experience since it has a compass but to my regret gps is not working and the my location pointer is not moving along with the vehicle and there is no voice guidance even though I have downloaded a voice but it works clearly on my 520 I thought it was only my issue but have read so many reports like this from 730&535 users in comments section... Has Microsoft fixed this issue in windows 10 maps app??? Please someone help

    HERE drive should work well.
    Did You test Your GPS with other map applications or with GPS tool in Hardware tests ? Many new Lumias have problem with low sensitive GPS. A good GPS should start and work without help of internet connection.

    I have Lumia 640 LTE with very poor GPS comparing to Lumia 520. It can work online (not always) but when offline it can't get fix from satellite almost anywhere where Lumia 520 can.
    HERE drive works well if the phone is online.
    It seems that many new Lumias have poor GPS. I am trying to find out is that a design problem or manufacturing problem - maybe bad antena connection ?

    Many people had problem with Lumia 730 gps. There is software issue .I was very irritated with this problem so I dig to find some solution.
    Main cause of gps not locking or not accurate is that the phone is not using satellite as source instead it is using cellular .we can check in hardware test app ,it will show position source cellular .
    To fix this software issue:
    1: Turn on airplane mode
    2: Now check position source in hardware test app,It will now show position source satellite and gps will work
    3:turn off airplane mode
    You will see that now your gps is working
    But if again it changes to cellular repeat the above steps
    (this fix is not permanent ,Microsoft has to fix the bug
