Sometimes, when I am navigating, maps does not know where I am. For example when I come to a stop at a "T" intersection, maps shows me about 100 feet away from the intersection and then, when I make the turn, it may show me as going straight. *It eventually catches up to me. This does not happen all the time but enough to be annoying and dangerous. *I've tested it with my son's and husbands motoX side by side with and they don't have the issue. *Does anyone know if this is a software or a hardware issue? *Do other people have this problem too?

I'm not trying to question your smarts but do you switch to high accuracy mode? From battery saver or device only? You could also go into WiFi settings and let WiFi scan while off, it will get a better lock on your location.

I am in high accuracy mode and scan for Wi-Fi while off is set. Not insulted at all.

I'd think the relates to the other thread we're in at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2593098

I'm really going that we can get some action in this from Motorola as this is really not acceptable as location based use is really becoming a staple of smartphone use beyond just navigation. Tweet this thread to Motorola support.
