When I am at home, my /e/ device (Moto G4) keeps locating me in a totally wrong place (always the same). I tested with different configurations, and seems to be related to wifi-based location, so I’m assuming that one wifi-hotspot around me is wrongly tagged in the MLS database. Is there a way to propose a fix?
Strangely, my Linux laptop (also using MLS) locates me correctly… :-/
Change mode to “Device only” in Settings (Security & privacy / Location).
If your device is then unable to acquire a location, you’re facing a GPS reception problem.
You can use the nice app “GPS Test” from Chartcross (com.chartcross.gpstest, available at Aurora Store), to validate & debug.
I tried the ‘Device only’ mode, it works fine. Again, I think I nailed down the cause of the problem to Wifi…
That being said, the problem seems to have disappeared, at least for now… I’m not sure yet, because it already happened in the past that my location would be temporarily good before jumping back to the wrong place, but this looks pretty stable now…
May be with all the tests I did, Mozilla Stumbler sent the correct info to the servers? (It says that one report was sent)
