    This has happened for some time, but everytime I use maps a blue dot appears in the middle of the screen, and I touch the screen, without locking the phone. I have tried looking in apps (cleared cached) and accessibility, with no luck... Can anyone help? The phone is a HTC One M8, Pic below:

    (Thanks in advance)

    Maybe the location of the device being used? My maps shows the same circle.
