I have a brand new S4 and cannot figure out why the GPS is not working.

In Google Maps, clicking the button that centers the screen at your current location reveals the following error:

"Please enable Google apps location access"

Going to Settings>Location Services I have everything checked off and activated:

Access to my location (let apps use your location information)
VZW location services
Standalone GPS services
Wi-fi & mobile network location service

Is there any reason why it shouldn't work?


Go to Settings>Accounts>Google>Location Settings and turn "Let Google apps access your location" on.

  • didn't work for me. am about to let go for an iphone 5c. it is a turn off not to have GPS on my galaxy s4. The one in the car broke down. – user173373 Jun 26 '16 at 21:26
