    Hello and welcome to Android Central whatever then!

    Did you follow the correct procedure of wiping the fake GPS app's cache and data, prior to uninstalling the app, as per Step #3 of #1.5 of S5 Update Problems - Dummies Guide? This is done to clear any files and cached information relating to an app before uninstalling.

    You could also try wiping the phone's cache partition as per #1.3 of the aforementioned guide to see if that helps.

    Also useful, maybe, is GPS fix S5 - Dummies Guide

    Finally, DO NOT let other people tinker with your phone in future.
