If you’re having issues with your GPS navigation or Google Maps on your LG could be either a software issue or it could be the GPS antenna in your LG smartphone. Most of the time it is a software issue and you can resolve it by modifying the following settings:

    • Go to Settings > Location (in the General tab).
    • 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 and help your phone find a GPS satellite faster.
