I am having the same problem on a Galaxy note 2 in Trinidad.
Has anyone had this problem resolved?

Some devices that connect to the cellular network but don't have the satellite radios for GPS will attempt to figure out where they are by triangulating distance to 3 cell towers. However, this requires a fairly strong signal with at least 2 towers (sometimes 3 are needed) and has rather limited accuracy compared to satellite receiver radios.
I would recommend using Waze with either an iPhone or a Samsung phone, depending on whether you prefer iOS or Android, in order to have the best possible hardware for location services.
