re.: Google Play store GPS test app download fails, Google Maps work fine on 3G, what's wrong ?

I can open Google Play store app on my Android 5.0 Medion smartphone but can't install any application, since waiting, waiting.

Google Maps work fine, so Internet is provided by my operator via 3G plan.

How to know what's wrong with Google Play store.

I have activated email account with gmail, as required.

If you know alternative download website for .apk, let me know

All I need to do is to test GPS in my phone via GPS test app.

Let me know how to fix the problem.

thank you

BTW1 I don't have on-line payment system activated, since I am interested in free app only.

  • ok, installed GPS Test app from apkpure.com/gps-test/com.chartcross.gpstest so the problem is with Google Play store let me know your opinion

    Great that you were able to solve your problem. In future please don't use emoji or smile faces or semi-related stories (blue ray disk??) to try to get your current problem status across as it confuses anyone trying to help you. Commented Apr 11, 2020 at 2:17

I did it.

" Touch Google Play Store > Uninstall updates . When prompted to change the Play Store app back to the factory version, touch OK.

" from Google Play Store downloads won't start

and what follows is:

exactly: Accept New Terms OK

Google updated terms of service by the end of March 2020 but failed to attach ACCEPT NEW Terms OK botton to 100+ page long document,

so Ms got Google Play store disabled ;)

BTW I have downloaded and installed GPS Tools app for test but this app is made of commercials only, no GPS mode ;( just ads and links to ads
