    Default Google maps and Google now showing the wrong location.

    I don't know what happened but Google maps and Google now think I am on the other side of the country. I am in Ohio and it is showing my location as in a neighborhood in Salt Lake city, Utah. I have turned location, WiFi and GPS on and off. Also I have turned the phone on and off. I am on T-Mobile and my other phones location is correct. Anybody ever see this before or have any ideas how to fix?

    Fixed. I had to go into settings and clear Google maps data and cache. I don't know why that happened.

    that was the most direct reasonable and seemingly correct answer i have seen about that issue. i did that and it was immediately corrected.
