    I have a Moto G 2nd gen with Marshmallow, which has been working fine for over a year. Last Friday morning, I clicked on the resident Google weather widget as I do every morning and it read Your Location as a place quite a distance away. I believe it's the location of my wifi provider. I shut off wifi on my way out the door per usual and then it couldn't find my location at all - the location window was completely blank, with a weather report for who-knows-where (15 degrees warmer than where I was). Everywhere I went, the location was varying degrees of wrong. Google Maps works fine - it's only the widget. I tried restarting, clearing the cache, restarting in Safe Mode, everything but a hard reset - which I'm trying to avoid if at all possible. I've typed my usual locations into the widget so I have the info I need but I want the phone to work properly. Has anyone else run into this? Suggestions?
