    Hi guys,

    I've started having problems with the GPS on my Samsung Galaxy S3 (not rooted), as it thinks I'm in Houjie in China, but I'm actually in England. Does anyone know how to fix this? To clarify, this only happens when I'm at home - when I'm out and about it find the correct location.

    Thanks, Leeski

    Sounds like it possibly can't lock onto enough satellites where you are. Are you outdoors with a clear line of sight of the sky? Are you using an app like TeleNav or the native Navigation or Maps? Is GPS and Location turned on?

    Well, this is a recent problem (as of yesterday), and I've had this phone since the end of august, not had a problem until now, so I don't know why it would suddenly say I'm somewhere completely different.... I am using the native Google Maps app, GPS and location are on.

    Suggestion is to remove the battery with the device on, count to 30 and replace the battery to see if that resets the device....
