You need Google Play services, but I think you could use the Open Source reimplementation, microG, for this. Here is a Installation guide from TJC.

You set permissions to allow it to use the GPS right?

note: location is not working reliably in microg on Sailfish but, somehow Google Maps actually works with MicroG.
