GPS not working properly on Nexus smartphone. Having issues with GPS tracking location on Nexus 4, Nexus 5 or Nexus 6. GPS navigation not working properly and having trouble with directions and pinpointing location accurately on Nexus phone. 


If you're having issues with your GPS navigation or Google Maps on your Nexus could be either a software issue or it could be the GPS antenna in your Nexus smartphone. Most of the time it is a software issue and you can resolve it by modifying the following settings:

  • Go to Settings > Location

  • Tap on "Mode"
  • Select "High accuracy"
  • You can also download an application from the Google play store named "GPS Status and toolbox" to help increase your gps accuracy even further and help your phone find a GPS satellite faster.

  • If you're still having issues after setting the accuracy to High and downloading the GPS Status app, it might be a hardware issue with the GPS antenna. Consider sending your Nexus for repair through your Carrier or going to a repair shop.
