Hi. For a while now, I've had a strange problem when I enable the hotspot option on my phone. When it's enabled, I suddenly get a card from Google now with travel time. The problem is my phone has my location miles from my actual location. Has anyone else seen this? If so, are you aware of any solution for it? This doesn't happen every time, but it happens most of the time.
Thanks in advance.

In the system Settings app, tap Location. What is the current value for "Mode" at the top of the list? If not "High accuracy" or "Device only", your phone uses a combination of cellular and Wi-Fi data to try to figure out where it is located.

Try changing the mode to one of the above and see if that resolves the issue.
