    It is because it keeps looking for an active data connection while using your home wi-fi it gets data connection via wi-fi but when you don't have data conncetion it doesn't work. I would recommend you to switch to a data plan instead !!

    Hi Kelly thanks for your reply
    when I disable my wifi and enable my gps I get a lock on 13 satellites
    when I click my google navigation icon I get an error message no network connection
    can you explain what you mean by switch to a data plan

    What kind of signal strength do you have when Wi-Fi is off? Maps requires a Data connection either Wi-Fi or Mobile to operate even with satellite lock.

    You need to enable Mobile data - the easiest way is to use the toggle that is available when you swipe down from the Status bar.

    thanks gt
    with my wi fi off I have a good mobile signal plus a lock to 13 sats
    my google gps sat nav has worked ok in the past
    now when I enable google maps using gpsI receive a voice message saying data connection lost
    Google maps/turn by turn sat nav works at home ok using wifi
    the message data connection lost seems to mean I cant receive googles data feed for the sat nav from my gps
    just a guess
    hoping you can help me
    I wonder is it a settings problem because my sat nav works ok with wifi but not off the satellite

    FIXED:
    Well, after several hours troubleshooting. It turns out to be the lucky patcher app. I am using it to block adds which modifies the host file on my samsung s4. I cleared the host file using lucky patcher and google maps started working again.

    Thanks Zhiki! You post has solved my problem not only for google maps but another app as well. Turned out to be either ad away or adblock app that modifies host files. I remember now adding alot of custom sources and one of those must have done it.
