    Strange problem. I have not found it in searches. The Smart Lock Trusted Location fails because it appears the devices assumed position drifts to nearly a km away. Once I unlock it, I can see on Google maps that the center of location of a HUGE circle is several blocks away. Shouldn't it check first where I am?

    Welcome to Android Central! Do you have the GPS radio turned on (i.e., Location set to High Accuracy)? If Location is set to Battery Saving, and you're relying on the cell signal and wi-fi for location, that can be significantly less accurate.

    Version 5.1 on Moto X PE (2015) version. Yes, mode is "high accuracy". I get a sense that it simply does not check frequently enough.

    That's weird, because assuming the GPS has a good signal lock, it ought to be pretty accurate. What happens if you change Location to Device Only (which only uses the GPS, and not the cell signal or wi-fi)?

    It started just after the Google Fit developers, an app which I use, announced a change when they activate the GPS for tracking. I'll try with Device Only.

    Fail with other location settings. I'll wait for next week when marshmallow is sent to me.

    Scratching my head here. Does the phone locate you precisely on Google Maps?

    Yes, once it collects data, otherwise I'm centered a great distance away and the size of the blue error circle is many blocks wide. Yep, it is odd.
