    Default Google Maps navigation always starts me off at the same wrong location :/

    Hey,
    My problem might have a very simple solution but I just can't seem to work it out.

    In Google maps, my current location is recognized but when I want to navigate from My Location to somewhere else it always starts the rout from a very random place about 70 km away from where I am, and always from the same place (A North Face store for some reason).

    Any help would be very appreciated!

    Noga.

    Odd... have you tried going to Settings->Apps->Maps and Clear Data on the apps and restart?

    Hey, thank you for replying. I did what you suggested, then tried to navigate and it worked, after a while I tried again and it went back to direct me from the same wrong location...

    Very odd. If you disable WiFi for about a while before starting navigation does that make difference? Are you always starting navigation at the same place when it says your somewhere else?

    You could have not selected where to start from. There is a from location where you fill it in and then look for a route. Otherwise it just goes from the last location.

    @Fairclough has a point, when I do navigation I always just use the "long press" method and skip the navigation options screen (when you search and find your destination and the bottom of the screen shows the method and time, like a car with 12 minutes below it) just long press the car symbol and it will immediately take the quickest route and route from current location without giving you all the options.
