    current location unavailable in google maps

    Recently if I open Google maps and select my location I get a message stating current location is unavailable. This happens when using the mobile network however if I use GPS it works. I am running 2.2 build frf83. This just started a couple days ago and it does it not matter where I am. Any ideas?

    That's always how it has worked for me. I've always needed to have GPS on before I got location... and if I had them both on (mobile network & GPS) then I get an incorrect location; about a mile from where I actually am. I reported this to Google and received an email back saying that's how it is supposed top work; that if the mobile network is not being accurate, then it will interfere with the more accurate GPS. So go figure


    Solution: I never use the mobile network for location, only GPS.

    It's app dependent...some apps expect an active GPS location service, while others will allow any location service (data/3G, wifi, and GPS) access. Maps and Earth expect a GPS service.
