    Re: Location services not working for mobile apps in Google android

    There are mainly three factors that are necessary for making the mobile apps from Google to work in your android device.

    They are;
    • The device must be turned on
    • The device must have network connectivity turned on
    • Location services enabled
    For enabling the location services, you will have to;
    • Go to ‘Settings’
    • Choose the tab denoted as ‘Location’
    • Choose the option denoted as ‘Use wireless networks’
    • You can also choose the option denoted as ‘Use GPS Satellites’
    • Finally enable it

    Check the following aspects first.
    - The device as well as location service must be enabled.
    - The internet access must be enabled.

    To turn on the Location service:-
    Press settings.
    Press location.
    Press wireless networks.
    Then turn on it.
    That's it.

    Make sure that you have enabled the GPS settings under Location. That is very much necessary to get the data from the Internet. After that make sure that the Internet connection is very stable. If the Internet connection is very slow then there is a greater chance that you may get errors in the routes displayed.

    Also expose the Mobile device to the open Sky for proper prediction, under any roof the GPS will not work effectively.
