No GPS. Showing approximate location

Hello. I would like to get some assistance on fixing an issue with a new device that I recently bought. I have been using the Waze application with my mobile phone and this is the first time that I am using this with another device. For reference purposes, I am providing the following information:

Device Information:
1. Device: ASUS ZenPad C 7.0 (Z170CG)
2. Operating System: Android Version 5.0.2
3. Downloaded Site: Play Store

Concerns:
1. The Waze app has been successfully installed in the device.
2. Upon opening the app, I tried typing a route and the app worked perfectly and shows the preferred route to my destination. The map shows all information regarding updated traffic on the roads.
3. My concern is that my current location could not merge with the highlighted route. The location status on my phone is turned on.
4. The words " No GPS. Showing approximate location" is shown on the top portion of the Waze app.
5. I tried installing it several times and it was the same issue.
6. I called the service support department of ASUS and they could not find a solution on their part. They have confirmed that the device has a 3G cellular data and with a GPS component.
7. They recommended I email Waze support directly to ask my concerns.

I would appreciate it if anyone could give me recommendations on how to fix it. Thanks.

I had this same issue and it was driving me absolutely insane because nothing worked. Then I saw videos on YouTube to unscrew your phone but I have a much upgraded phone which disabled me from unscrewing. Then randomly I noticed the only thing I changed about my phone was my new case. I swear to you, I took the case of for shits and giggles and restarted my phone, the damn GPS worked. I couldn't believe it. So I put the case back on and reopened the GPS app, it stopped working again! Not sure if this will work for everyone but it doesn't hurt to try!

Try checking gps using other apps. With iOS, open Find My IPhone. Also check your location with Apple Maps or Google Maps.

Is this just Waze or a larger issue with GPS on your device?
