    I will say sorry in advanced, i am not the most tech savy of people.

    But i know something is wrong and i can not figure out how to flipping fix it.

    For the past month, my S6 Active will show the wrong location It affects the following apps (ones i know of)

    Standard phone weather, Google maps, and Facebook.

    Currently it shows my "City" as a town almost 3 hours north of my home town. I have no idea why, and I cant figure out why? I have not been in this town for almost 4 years, and I did not have this phone then either.

    Shockingly enough, it does not affect my pokenon go app? That i found weird.

    My home address is assigned in google maps, but it still puts me in this random lot in this other town.

    Can anyone help me out with this? It makes it really annoying trying to get weather and directions.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! Go to Settings>Location -- is it set to High Accuracy or Battery Saving? If you change it to High Accuracy, does it give better location?

    It seems that it is already set to high accuracy? I tried changing it to one of the other ones, then changing it back and there is no change

    When you open Google Maps and tap the crosshairs icon at the lower right, is it still way off? If so, then I'd guess there's something wrong with the GPS radio.
