    Google Latitude shows wrong directions Sony Xperia Ion

    Google Latitude on my Sony Xperia Ion shows wrong directions. It changes the location and directions completely. I have tried to re-install it but nothing helped. How can I deal with this problem?

    Re: Google Latitude shows wrong directions Sony Xperia Ion

    hey friend..

    You must be knowing the fact that GPS receivers use signals from a network of satellites and ground stations to search out current location and where you would like to go....
    This information is then linked with the maps that are stored on your phone...
    So , firstly we can say that satellite signals are not completely accurate and trustworthy as they can identify your location but not the exact one .. they can be close but not accurate...
    *
    Also the reason for the wrong directions in your phone could be that your maps are now outdated....
    So , its better to update your maps in your phone first and then try to use your google latitude service..

    Hope i helped
    thanks

    Steps to turn on location reporting on Google Maps :-

    -> First move to the application section on your android device.

    -> And then open the "Maps application" on your device.

    -> Once it opens you see a "Maps & Latitude" option where you locate the "Location settings"
    that you want.

    -> Here you select the "Location reporting" that you want to edit.

    -> After selecting the "Location reporting", you see the option that is "update your location",
    so just tap over this option and turn ON the "location reporting".

    -> After doing this restart the device and check the direction showing by maps is correct or not.
