Hey all,

Anyone having location problems when using Google Now? I've enabled location reporting and history, but unless I open Maps before Google now, I don't get any location based alerts. Such as weather, etc...

Thanks in advance.

Hi you must open WI-FI and GPS ;) if you sill have this problem you should go to settings ----> apps ----> and find Google now, when you find it do force close and clear data then reboot the phone :cool:

HY, you need to be on a wifi network/have gps on in order of the phone to find you.

Wow... strange that you HAVE to have wifi enabled to use the services. On the same token, I'm surprised I didn't know this, lol.

Thanks!

Did this issue get resolved for you? I have found the problem and I temporary fix.

The issue is related to the new Google play services 3.2..they changed location to use wifi as Android 4.3 has it on at all times.. This is to save power from using GpS.. Anyway if your not running 4.3 and have wifi on all the time your location based cards will not work...


The solution, downgrade to Google play services 3.1 Everything works great on 3.1..

Hope this helps.
