    Default Google maps not working

    I haven't been able to use Google maps as a navigation. I'm not sure if it's the phone or the carrier. I have sprint so that probably explains it. Have any of you guys experienced problems with the navigation on Google maps?

    I know that the navigation portion doesn't work for me unless I turn GPS on. I have it in energy saving mode, and a pop up appears when I try to navigate, telling me to change settings.

    I see you have the power saving on in the notification bar. Could that be it?

    Actually I always leave my GPS on the most accurate setting but my view arrow won't move and after a few minutes it says GPS signal lost.

    does it actually get a GPS lock? if the GPS icon (satellite dish with waves emanating) keeps blinking, no lock. It turns steady when it gets a lock. google maps won't work with turn-by-turn without a gps lock. I also have an M8 on sprint, and sometime it won't lock. turn the phone off and back on then try. I think something in the GPS settings get's stuck, and it won't lock, but the power cycle will reset whatever is stuck. a reset won't do it (in my experience), have to power off, then back on. hope that works for you.

    Power save mode doesn't keep gps from coming on when needed. You need to open Maps and go to settings-Google location settings-set accuracy to High.

    Open Maps and go to settings. In settings there is a location accuracy setting. Set it to high accuracy.
