Hi all!

On JellyBean I had the location settings on Wifi+GSM networks, since GPS takes battery power and I don;t need a very accurate location. On KitKat, Google can't find my location anymore, so it seems. On Wifi/GSM Google Maps prompts "waiting for location", on GPS/Wifi/GSM is finds my location eventually but only by GPS location. No GPS reception, no location update.

Is there something broken here?

I'm running a stock EU Z1 compact, no root, no custom ROM or anything.

Same problem here. I no longer have any GPS settings on my phone. There is not even an option under Quick Settings to add a GPS toggle. The Sonly widget has a GPS toggle but it does nothing. Navigation software can not find the GPS either. I have no GPS.

The Google Location started working again a few days ago, without any action from my side.... Maybe some error in the Google service?

Mine got going again after a factory reset and some software loaded on.
Do you have a distinct GPS quick toggle? I don't.

You can go to the Settings, Location menu and switch between 3 options: GPS+Wifi+Mobile networks, Wifi+Mobile networks and GPS only.
