    Location not correct while using Wi-Fi after android OS update

    Ever since I updated my Samsung android phone to the latest android Jelly Bean operating system, my device has started facing some issues. The problem now is that my android device is not showing the current location while using Wi-Fi. Why is it so?

    Re: Location not correct while using Wi-Fi after android OS update

    Hi,
    The problem with the phone not showing the right place when using WiFi might be due to the reason that the location service due to WiFi is not accurate and that it points to the nearest location that the phone is getting the connection from also the problem with the phone might be due to the fact that if you have installed an Unofficial update of the jelly bean for your device then the problem might occur as if there is something wrong with the code and it takes time to correct minor issues. If the update is official then try doing a factory reset and that the mobile will become a normal again and will show you the right place for connection.
    Hope this Helps.

    Hi,

    Open Settings menu ---> Location & security ---> Check 1) Use wireless networks 2) Use GPS Satellites.

    Now open the google maps and then you will find your current location perfectly.


    REGARDS,
