    Trying to set my home location is beyond frustrating due to being just inaccurate enough to be very close to my home, but never fully on it.

    I'm using high accuracy, have the google maps app as optimized as possible, standing outside, doing every thing I can, but the same thing happens every time: I touch the "current location" option from the drop down menu (Which is infuriating on it's own, that I cannot simply touch my location or type it in, but have to use a drop-down menu?!), when then throws a perfect big blue circle around my home, and everything looks fine, until I touch "save". As soon as I do that, the circle shifts to the SW just enough that my house is now just at the edge of the circle, and so, when I'm in one room of the house, the smart settings are working, but when I go to another room, they are not. Why does that circle move as soon as I hit save, even though it's perfectly accurate just before that?! Is there no other way I can set it? Google maps nails my location perfectly, so why does this not?

    Hi there and welcome to Android Central.

    What device do you have, and what version of Android is it running?

    What settings are you using for your location?

    I have mine on high accuracy.


    Does it make any difference if you change those settings?

    I already stated that my settings are on high accuracy. I have an LG G4, running Android 6.0. I've optimized the hell out of this thing to try to get the location to land precisely, but to no avail.

    At first, my place is fully encompassed. Not perfectly, but well enough.

    But then, I hit save, and it jumps at that moment! Every damn time....
