Hi guys,
Google maps is not able to detect my location when not on wifi. It thinks I am where my home is (shows a grey dot instead of blue when locating).
I am using GPS in high accuracy mode, google reporthing is enabled and I used another app to detect my location and it works so I am not quite sure what is going on..
Any idea?
Cheers

The GPS antenna might be loose. You can test the GPS itself with Device Only mode to see.

Had the same problem a while ago because I changed the location permission settings with App Ops X for Google Services or something.
If you haven't hacked permissions ignore this post.

Check Google Maps, Google Play or Google Services etc to check if location, monitor location, etc is enabled
