gps not tracking location accurately on samsung


GPS not working properly on Samsung smartphone. Having issues with GPS tracking location on Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4, Note 4 edge, Note 3 or Grand Prime. GPS navigation not working properly and having trouble with directions and tracking location accurately on Samsung Galaxy.


If you're having issues with your GPS navigation or Google Maps on your Samsung smartphone, it could be either a software issue or it could be the GPS antenna in your Galaxy 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.

  • 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 your GPS antenna. Consider sending your samsung device for repair through your carrier or taking it to a repair shop.
