Does not show location

Added by Anonymous about 1 year ago. Updated about 1 year ago.

Device model:
Pixel 6
OS version:
Android 13
App name and version:
GPX Viewer PRO v1.43.1


Since the last update GPX Viewer Pro does not show my location. The app seems to be working fine otherwise, it just does not show my location which means I cannot record a track either.

I tried:

  • restarting the application
  • restarting the phone
  • clearing the app's cache
  • clearing the storage
  • reinstall

After reinstall the application asks for permission to access location. I grant it, but still no location shown on the map. Usually, when I open an app that fetches location data, I can see a green dot in the top right corner of the screen. That green dot is not visible when I open GPX Viewer.

GPS works on the phone for sure. I have a bunch of GPS tester apps on my phone, all of them can acquire the location.

GPX Viewer (not the PRO version) produces the same issue.

I think I found out what the problem is. It seems that GPX Viewer depends on Google Play Services. I don't have that on my phone anymore. It would be nice if the app could work without it, too.

Good afternoon,
thank you for reporting your issue, unfortunately we can not run the application without Google Play Services.

Kind regards,
