    My Galaxy S5 constantly shows me in Brighton, Michigan. My actual location is in Sterling Heights, some 40 miles east of that. The weather app shows Brighton several times a day, as does Google Maps, Location History, and Friend Locator. Today, a chat in Facebook showed me in Brighton, which prompted a comment from the person I was texting. Nobody seems to have any answers for this. It is beyond annoying. Any ideas as to what may be causing it?

    On your GS5's display pull down from the top.
    Long press on the location icon.
    You'll see this:
    Why is my GPS, map, weather showing the wrong locations?-1404998379979.jpg
    If the first option (under Mode) doesn't say High Accuracy, press on Mode, you'll see this:
    Why is my GPS, map, weather showing the wrong locations?-1404998492006.jpg
    Press on High accuracy.
    That should help.
