    Default Problem with locations!

    Hey guys...

    Since yesterday I've had a problem with my locations on my Nexus 5..

    When I checked the weather yesterday, google now (when I swipe to left from home screen) showed me I was in Italy (and I live in Denmark). I tried restarting, turning off/on locations, turned my location settings to high accuracy (I use battery save as default), logged out/on my google account, and basically everything, and nothing worked. Then I thought I better wait and see what happens, maybe it will fix itself... but now, one day later, google simply cannot determine my location. When I use voice command "where am I" it just searches on google, and when I use google maps to show my location it just says "waiting for location..." and nothing happens.

    I don't know what to do, and this is really a big problem for me because I use location a lot!

    Would appriciate any help, thanks in advance!

    I don't know if it will do the trick but you could try resetting app preferences. Settings, Apps, All, Reset. Also Date & Time.

    i'm experiencing the exact same symptoms, except the discussed solution didn't help me, maps is not able to fix a location with gps turned on either.

    i uninstalled updates, and reupdated maps to latest version but without success

    cleared cache and dalvik cache, no improvement...
