    Google Search- location

    On the google search page it says my location is unavailable. When I hit update it still says location unavailable. How do I fix this?

    Thanks

    you can either turn on you wifi, gps (best option), or make sure you're in an area where you get good signal.

    you dont need to have GPS on


    check

    settings > location and security

    make sure the top box is checked off.... says something like use wifi and wireless towers to locate.

    Mine does the same thing on the Google home screen. Don't know why, but it knows my location.

    from time to time, mine shows up with the blue dot on, with a number 2 next to it. I don't know what that means, but im sure it's something!
