Default GPS problem?

Guys, in the locations setting I have my N5 set to "Device Only". But for some reason my N5 won't pick up my location in any app that requires it. In Maps I get the following message "waiting for location...".

I've stood outside holding aloft my phone but still nothing.

But of I change seeing to "high accuracy" it works.

Have I messed up my GPS?

Hi mate,

First of all, you've posted in wrong section.
Secondly, you need to connect your device to wireless network or mobile data so that your device GPS initially tracks you and than you can set the GPS to Device only mode and the GPS will work.
If you feel that your GPS is having issues, you can test it using this app.

Whoops! Sorry mate.
