    lately my phone has been having very inaccurate GPS location. I see this with Google maps and other apps. I am constantly still even when I am moving. This started about 3 weeks ago. Anyone experience the same? Any trouble shooting I can do?

    Try clearing phone cache. (Restart method)
    Also try calibrating compass inside Google maps app. (Tap the blue dot of your location and on the blue screen calibrate option in left side bottom)

    same problem i noticed when i tried to navigate on foot, problem with accurately positioning and east west...
    it got me going in the wrong direction in longer streets,
    when you find the right way and turn a few times then starts working fine... but meybe it's just me...

    After a few restarts and cache clearing, I seem to be getting a better result. I Will test better when I get on the road in a few hours and update you all.

    This problem has everyone, only a few give it importance. GPS accuracy is very bad. Report the problem! Send feedback to developers to correct this.

    The method is useless. The problem is software.

    Hello all. 1st and foremost thank you all for your suggestions and ideas. Much appreciated.
    I have to say everything is back to normal now after clearing the cache, and restarting a few times. Also checked to make sure use wi-fi to help location is turned on, but I believe this shouldn't be a factor once I am in motion.
    so @akks your suggestions worked.
