I am having a very weird issue. I have 6 android devices note 3, note 10.1 2014 (2), note 4, Tab S, S4, and HTC Desire. Some devices are rooted and some not. Some are WiFi only and some are LTE devices. On all of them, Google maps gets stuck on "searching for GPS", irrespective of location (indoor, outdoor, different zip code).

I have tried everything from clearing cache for apps to factory resets, but haven't been successful in fixing the issue. I have also tried the device specific information I could get from other XDA threads, but those didn't work either .

Any help would be appreciated.

Truly a bizarre problem. Have you tried signing into a different Google account and seeing if that fixes the problem? Let me know how it goes I'll he happy to keep thinking of possibilities.

All the testing and you skipped the first step which is a logcat.

Using a different Google Account solves the issue (i.e. I am able to get turn-by-turn directions). Thanks for the suggestion . It's still a weird issue though

Glad you could find a temporary work around, but as mentioned by the great zelendel would you mind posting a logcat of what happens when you login with your usual account. I will look then at the log file and see if I can determine any causes .

The logcat file is too big to upload. Here is a link for the file. Thanks for all your help...

Hey man I haven't forgot about you! My grandfather ended up passing away this past week so my mind and time as can be expected have been else where recently. In the morning I will re-analyze the log file and let you know what I find .

I am very sorry to hear that brother... He's in a better place now...

Don't worry about it and take your time... My thoughts are with you and your family.
