I used Maps to pinpoint my location and to see how I should walk in town. Now that I traveled 600Km East the GPS is still in the previous town, although at the beginning it stated to be updating my location it didn't. It remains fixed at my last known location for the device. Is there a way to force maps to pinpoint my location again, so that it is correct and useful for navigation?

A tap and hold on the map should center the view to your current location.

I know about the centering and prior to creating this ticket I found the one you suggest. The thing is that my location is not updating. It says I'm in City A, while I'm 600km from there and it is not centering my position accordingly. Tap and hold brings me back to my previous known location, which is off.

I'm having the same thing. The location is not updated anymore and nothing I do will help.

After upgrading to (Paarlampi) and tweaking a little with Location on/off, it started working again. Starnge.
