    Does anyone else use this feature and if so noticed that it doesn't work after the Android 11 update? I'm trying to figure out if it's a permission issues or it's software related. Any feedback is appreciated!

    Indeed it is that's why I don't know why it's not saving wifi locations.

    If you go settings there, saved network then delete and re-add them ?

    It's not saving the locations at all. I can't even find system apps to clear data.

    Looks like Google maps, maybe clear that and force stop.

    For my mobile game controller I've setup a Bixby routine where once the game controller connects via BT, wifi and do not disturb turn on. Works ace. Once I turn off the controller, wifi and DND goes back off to previous.

    I've having the same issue since Android 11 update, clearing map cache and data didn't resolve the problem. Also tried wipe cache at boot up. Smart Lock is working fine so Google Maps is properly finding my location. I also tried removing each remembered network setting then putting them back there is even a wifi location option now and it also is showing correctly.

    Did you force stop after data clear?

    No I did not force stop I neglected that step will try again doing that. Just curious not at all questioning you just want to understand what does force stopping it actually do?

    It resets the app , and makes it relearn new data

    Verizon just pushed an update that I think has fixed the issue. It just saved my home location Wifi.

    I tried clearing cache and data in Google maps and a force stop, also removed saved WiFi locations and put hem back. In the advanced wifi settings there is a location tab and it's showing the correct location. It also shows the last time it turned on or off the WiFi was December 16 th. one day before the Android 11 update. Smart Lock works so I must believe Google maps is finding a proper location. I think it's broke unless anyone has another suggestion. I don't have the ambition to do a factory reset.

    Why would using this be better than leaving wifi enabled? I am asking seriously, I've never used this setting and don't know the benefits. Is it better or simply a preference?

    I have unlimited data and I prefer that than some random wifi at Starbucks. And if I'm not near wifi, why leave it in scanning looking for a network to connect to?

    What it did was turn wifi on when I got home or at work and off everywhere else it doesn't rely on scanning but on a map location. This prevented it from trying to constantly connect to networks I don't want if wifi is left on. It was just a convenient option. I know it's not a big deal to manually turn it on and off when but when you had something that worked well for years and it's gone you investigate if there is a way to get it functioning again.

    Thanks for the reponses. I may give it a try. I've always left wifi on and never thought anything about it.

    Does this help battery life any?

    Yes it does improve battery life I should have mentioned that. I got a second January OTA update today so hopefully it's fixed I don't have the time to try a factory reset. When it's working it's a real convenience and would add some level of security.

    Thanks again! I've been using it for the past few days and so far it's been working fine. I don't seem to be having any issues with it that I can tell.

    Yes it either works or not no in between unfortunately mine stopped with the Android 11 update and still doesn't function. I was hoping the second January update I received a few day's ago would fix it but no luck. I am out of option's to try and don't have the ambition to do a full factory reset.

    Me too! It's amazing how these companies charge $1300 for a phone and the basic functions just stop working after an "update". Note 10 and this phone were working flawlessly until this last update. So many issues with battery, bluetooth, MMS, wifi on automatically. And I already did a factory reset. Wth... Hey Samsung if it ain't broke don't fix it!!!! I would have got the S20 ultra but the idiots at Samsung thought it would be smart to remove the SD card slot. What is wrong with the people? I'm mean really!!?? ......ok rant is over feel better now 😂
