    Default Location Services not updating impacting Weather widget

    I found a peculiar issue. I found that the weather widget would not update even if I set the refresh interval at an hour or did a manual update. I played with the 3 location settings (high accuracy, power savings, and GPS only) that are new with Kit Kat. I found that none of them worked unless I had my wifi enabled. It did not have to be connected, just enabled. As soon as I enabled wifi it would refresh with no issues.

    I disable my wifi when away from my house to save battery, it looks like I won't be able to do this anymore if I want location services to work correctly. I also found that this was impacting my llama application (location specific phone settings). Anyone know of a fix for this issue?

    I had this issue with some widgets on the S4, and found that changing the launcher did the trick. Touchwiz does not necessarily play well with widgets. I use Nova and the Google experience, depending on how I feel.

    I can get it to work without WiFi in power save mode

    Obliviously you need to have data on but also try setting your location default eg home

    I also have the 2 google features switched off

    I believe from other threads I've seen that it's a glitch with the accuweather app. I use the weather channel as my primary weather app without any problems, but the app on the lock screen never seems to update. For now I've just turned it off
