Wrong location

Postby ken4966 » Tue Mar 18, 2014 10:46 am

I have moved office to KL Sentral but somehow waze keeps showing my old office location when I have wifi turned on in office. But if I choose to use the cellular GPS, the correct office location is shown. Quite annoying. Was this due to some setting or cache data? Can I set it up such that even if I have wifi turn on while in office, it shows the correct location? Thanks

This shouldn't problem of Waze & most probably is your configuration settings in office internet connection.

That's due to Google learn your WiFi's location. It going to take time to update on Google database or you can cancel location service based on Netowork under Android's settings

Waze client depends on your mobile GPS to detect your location. If you use your office wifi, make sure your mobile has GPS lock.

Otherwise it will show your last position detected by the mobile GPS.
