Default geo location issue

Can someone help me?
When I go to Google maps it can not find my position when I need directions
Also when I use weather widgets it can't find my location for the city I'm in

Stupid question....

Is GPS turned on and did you agree to share your location?

did you try to restart the device? the phone acts up now and again, and doesn't do what it's suppose to do.

For my phone, I've noticed that the location takes a long time to load, despite turning all types of location on [google, assist, standalone/wifi/4g]. As a passive fix, turn it on 15 minutes before you need to use the gps, and make sure you've got a signal.

As for an alternative passive fix for the weather, try another app instead, where you can manually put the zip code, or city name.
