Google Location Provider (Network, Wi-Fi position) not working - Help and Tip?

Hello people,
Google's location service has stopped working. (GPS is OK).
Network and WiFi location service.
I've been staring for google for two days ... nothing.
Things like reinstal google play, google services, google maps, cache and data removal, restart, softreset, check localization permission ...
None of that helped.
I do not want Hardreset yet.

I'll be grateful for any other tip or help.

Zdravím ľudia,
Prestala mi fungovať služba určovania polohy google podla siete. (GPS je OK).
Servis polohy zo siete a WiFi.
Dva dni hladam na google... nič.
Veci ako reinstal google play, google služby, mapy google, Odstranenie cache a data, restart, softreset, kontrola povolení lokalizacie...
Nič z toho nepomohlo.
Hardreset zatiaľ nechcem.

Budem vďačný za akykoľvek ďalši tip alebo pomoc.

"Not working" is based on what? That Locus does not display green dashed circle as your network/wi-fi location?
As I know, this feature is affected by only single settings in your device > this one:

No Google service or any such stuff should have an effect here. Did you tried different application, like Google Maps etc?

Menion thanks for answer and interest  :)

Mode "Battery saving" (network, WiFi) does not work.
Determining the approximate position does not work for:
Locus, weather, news, sense, profile, etc. Everything!  >:(

These services are running.
What else is missing?



As I wrote, Google Services stuff should have no effect here.
Requirements: "wifi, network" location source enabled in settings, enabled and connected wi-fi or valid mobile signal. All seems to be correct on your device.
Hmm I'm searching some info mainly around "network provider does not work", but really, no useful info.

I may only offer small help. You may try to enable "Wi-fi, network" location source only ("battery saving" on my screenshot), then restart the device. After that immediately start Locus, turn on location sats screen and if no location appears during the first minute, create me a log like when Locus Map crash. In log should be (maybe) some information why no location was received.

I think this section is of interest to us.
I share the entire report on G-disk.
Once again great thanks for your willingness.

Absolute mystery.

Manual hand setting saving mode (mod 2, network, wifi) does not work!


1. Select GPS only (mod 3) and do not have GPS (No Fix)
2. Run an application that wants a location.
3. The position is not available (No Fix), the application asks for position and offers to choose positioning. OK. The application switches to a Hight Accuracy (mod 1, GPS, Network, wifi)
6. At this point, my cellphone gets a network location and wifi (GPS no fix)
7. Then manually switch to saving mode (mod 2, only network, wifi)

Position remains available and your mobile is working properly. (mod 2) and the GPS is off.

I did not find any other way to choose Mod 2.

This problem occurred on 8.5.2018 around lunch time.
I did not perform any extra operations, updates, installations on this day.

This procedure is a temporary solution. It's a mystery ...

Absolutná záhada.
Manualne ručné nastavenie úsporný režim (mod 2, network, wifi) nefunguje!


1. Zvolim len GPS (mod 3) a nemám signál GPS (No Fix)
2. Spustím nejakú aplikáciu ktorá chce polohu.
3. Poloha nie je dostupná (No Fix), aplikácia vyžiada polohu a ponúkne zvoliť získanie polohy. OK. Aplikácia prepne polohu na Vysoká Presnosť (mod 1, GPS, Network, wifi)
6. V tomto momente môj mobil získa polohu zo siete a wifi (GPS no fix)
7. Následne ručne prepnem na úsporný režim (mod 2, len network, wifi)

Poloha zostáva dostupná a mobil pracuje správne. (mod 2) a GPS je off.

Nenašiel som žiadny iný postup ako zvolit mod 2.

Tento problém nastal 8.5.2018 okolo obeda.
V tento deň som nevykonával žiadne extra operácie, aktualizácie, inštalácie.

Tento postup je provizórne riešenie. Je to záhada...


Unfortunately I also do not have good news.
In logs all seems to be correct.
Interesting is line 19257, where is clearly LocationManagerService: getBestProvider(Criteria[power=LOW acc=LOW], true)=network, which looks like "network provider" works correctly.

Status recap:


Network Location provider - NOT WORKING
Better Location Provider - NOT WORKING (Probably because of no NLP)




I had plans to replace the battery and hoped that this could be solved.

Today, after the battery has been replaced, the defect has been removed.

The problem with the integrated batteries is that the device does not provide a cold start.
The device is always in the fast start setting. Replacing the battery has completely restarted and rebooted.

On old devices, it was enough to remove and insert the battery.
