stuck at "Initializing Dronenet connection..." animation

[ Android 10, Nubia RedMagic 5S, Prime 2.65 ]

Frequently when going to dronenet after the app has been running for a while, i get stuck in the opening animation for what seems like forever (10 seconds or more). Killing and restarting the app gets me in much faster.

  • Do you know if this is related to your other bug report about game actions failing when your location hasn't been acquired/confirmed? Does this happen on Wi-Fi and also on mobile?

    @NianticBrian i am typically in my home, doing my first hack of the day as part of my morning "wake up and get ready" activities, so wifi.

    i don't recall making other bug reports related to GPS not available, That said, if this is the issue, the UI should give feedback about "waiting for GPS lock" instead of the rather glib and meaningless "initializing dronenet connection". "Waiting for GPS lock" lets me know the problem is on my end, and not on niantic's end.

    THAT SAID... why would dronenet need a GPS lock??? the drone is typically sitting on some distant portal...
