    I recently moved residences and having problem with Maps on my GSN4. When I open Maps, it shows my location at my previous home which is 10 miles away.

    I've cleared my cache, uninstalled the Maps updates and then reinstalled updates, still to no avail. Any advice appreciated.

    Regards

    Have you tried any apps to check out how good your GPS reception is?

    There are also other free mapping apps available that you could use to see if your location is displayed correctly (to help you narrow down the problem - is it Maps or the device).

    Thanks for the tips. I was hoping someone had a fix. Maps seems to be working properly other than giving me the wrong "home" location. When I'm actually driving, everything appears to be working right.

    Change your location settings to GPS only. If you are using the same SSID on your WiFi at the new address it may confuse the location service.

    You can in Maps set your HOME location. Are you sure you didn't previously set it and even with the reinstall, it is picking that up?
    Check SETTINGS, edit HOME/WORK locations.

    Yeah, that's what I think the OP's problem is. The link I posted above is Google's instructions on doing this ("Save your home and work addresses").

    Hey guys - thanks for all the tips. Tried them all and continued to have the same problem. I did a factory reset and now Maps is working properly. A big hassle but I'm happy as Maps is one of my favorite Apps.
