    GPS not working properly with Google Maps

    I am trying to tract the route with my Google Maps. When I opened the app it asked me to switch on the GPS for better navigation. Even after switching on the GPS it works the same. Its not able to track the route at all. When I checked the notification it says "Searching for GPS" for a very long time. What is the issue? Why I am not able to track the route? Please help me to fix this problem.

    You have to do following things to use gps properly.
    1)go to settings
    2)open location and services.
    3)enable all three options.
    enable gps services.
    enable allow google to track your location.
    enable improve gps location by Google.
    4)now update your map is update is available.
    5)you really require fast data connection to use gps properly.
    6)i recommend you use data connection of at least 10kB/s so your gps works.
    7)if your using low data connection then your gps not work properly and take too much time.
