@Morty007: Estonia is a little closer to the UK than Russia I suppose...
What's your Locating Method set as? And anything else on the phone pointing you towards the Baltic and Russia?
An app update is being planned, but we haven't been given a confirmed exact timescale for it.
Our software team will be working on a patch for this issue though. If this issue is still affecting you, and you're wanting a patch, can you send them an error report about the app issue using the Samsung Members app? (Open Members app > Select Support > Send Feedback > Error Reports > Application > Tick Send System Log Data and attach a description of the problem.)
My Note 8 has always had issues with trusted locations not working. After installing a new weather app I know why. It has no clue where it is!
If I start a GPS app it locks in and gets it right. Obviously, trusted places and some weather apps are not starting the GPS to obtain an accurate location. There is something putting the GPS to sleep and it is not waking up. Trusted places also works after calling up the GPS app.
I've done all the suggestions including a factory reset. C'mon Samsung you're smarter than this. Or do just not care?
When lost it always reports being at the same incorrect place, miles away.
I’m getting the same thing on my new Samsung Galaxy S8. Says I’m in Christchurch when I’m actually in SE London! Tried everything from clearing the cache to factory resetting the phone. Really angry and have decided to return the phone for a refund as clearly Samsung are not going to fix this.
