    Status: Fixed in Unity 5.6.0

    I did download 5.6.0b6, but still not working.
    Do I need to wait till 5.6.0 beta will be finished or where i can download 5.6.0?

    Unfortunately, NameOfApp has stopped.
    Hope this is fixed soon.

    We are also going to make a project around using GPS and nothing is working. The app keep crashing on every update.

    Congrats folks. This is now the fourth highest issue of all time. Twenty-one votes until it reaches number one.

    The folks at Unity do know this is an issue and are actively working on it. It's just a much tougher problem than they were expecting. We got confirmation that they're working on it back on January 24th, but no new news since then:

    Broken in Unity 5.6.0b4 (64-bit), it does not crash immediately though. It crashes after I want to read the location values.

    To sum it up:
    Latest working version 5.4.4f1

    Broken in every 5.4.4 patch release (5.4.4p1 + p2)
    Broken in every 5.5.x stable and patch release (5.5.0f1-3, 5.5.0p1-4, 5.5.1.f1 and 5.5.1p1)
    Broken in every 5.6.0 beta release (5.6.0b1-5)

    There is a workaround for android provided by @H-ALEX via (dig through the thread around Jan 17th).
