    Ok, this is the oddest problem I have ever seen in a phone. If I have line of sight with satellites (Outdoors) my locations is perfect(Scottsdale, AZ). If I go into a heavy concrete building such as my work, the GPS says I am at a house in Latvia.

    Is this a bug or something is wrong with my phone? I guess my fear is it has been cloned by someone in Latvia or something, I checked and I have no odd charges which is good.

    If the GPS was just broken and giving a bogus locations, wouldn't it be much more likely it would think I am in an Ocean or non populated area? A house in Latvia seems a bit too suspicious.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Maybe you're not where you think you are.

    GPS is really pretty straight forward. If yours isn't right, you just need to take it in.

    GPS in a concrete building? Pretty sure that is your problem.
