    The location is not working on my Nexus 5 phone. It did last week. Now Google Maps, Android Device Manager, nothing can access my GPS. My location is turned on under settings. Any thoughts?

    I might have to factory reset it. Just wanted to see if anyone has any better ideas.

    I am currently set to "High Accuracy" mode, although I've tried all three settings without any luck.

    Oh boy, I feel dumb. I've been racking my brain for days. Turns out turning my phone off was the trick!

    I assume you meant "restarting my phone was the trick" :)

    I had it happen to me once, I just turned on airplane mode and then turned it off again and it reset.

    I screwed up my map gps location a few weeks ago. It just wouldn't locate me but on other gps apps were working. Finally figured out I was my own worst enemy. I turned off location tracking in Google play service through appsOp. Didn't realize that affected google maps.
