GNSS, Interrupted: The hidden Android setting you need to know

The problem

Using default Android settings, you may see “choppy” GNSS measurement data, especially for L5 (Source: Andrew Wu, GPSTest Google Group)

The solution

To active developer options, in your Android system settings under “About phone” tap “Build number” seven times
“Developer options” is usually under system settings or under “System” submenu, depending on Android version. Android 11 is shown above.
Turn on “Force full GNSS measurements” to avoid gaps in raw measurement data
With “Force full GNSS measurements” setting enabled, the repeated gaps in the data are gone (Source: Andrew Wu, GPSTest Google Group)
