Since last week, my location apps (Google maps and my weather apps that apparently use google data) have me located about 100 miles away from where I and my phone are actually located.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled various updates to Maps, Google, Chrome, and my weather apps. No Change.
I have downloaded and installed an app called GPSFix from the Play Store. It shows three different locating systems:
1. Android GPS Provider
2. Android Network Provider
3. Google Play Services Provider
When I'm at home, 1 is correct and 3 is wrong by about 100 miles. At work, 1 is wrong (by about 500 meters) and 3 is correct. 2 remains unchanged and seems to be mostly correct.
What the heck is going on? And how do I resolve this problem?
