Same here. So far no more restarts with 4G and location services on after installing 00WW_2_22E in Germany.
germany here. received the update for my TA-1043 yesterday evening. so far so good. drove 50 km this morning, used google maps just for testing and went into the supermarket with my phone in the pocket before work. no restart so far. i guess they finally got it going.
Turned 4G on, no reboots all day, including a 40 minute drivers with Android Auto/Maps working. Normally this would results in 4 or 5 reboots. So looking like its fixed
The update in question – which is around 80MB in size – includes the June security patch. However, the patch information is a bit misleading – it says May patch, along with the same list of changes that arrived with the previous update. Multiple users have confirmed that this is indeed the June update:

They didn’t change the Update notes. They even forgot to mention the June Security Patch. According to the notes, it said Security Patch : 2018-05. But, after updating. It shows 1 June 2018 in settings
