When I wS on Android auto. I asked to navigate to home depot. Maps on my 2021 Jeep via Android auto, tried to navigate me to a home depot 4 hours away. I checked for all updates on the jeep software and my GS21 Ultra, I tired everything.
Later While sitting in the house . I asked Google
"What is my current location " it said "Charlotte NC" 
That's 3 hours away.
Yet GPS seems to be working perfectly. 
The only thing I can think of is my carriers servers are in NC and my internet servers are in NC.

Can anyone else confirm. Using Google ask your current location and see if it's accurate. 
Thanks people.

Ok I found out it was using my wifi server location. All I had to do is was ask it to navigate home like 7 times. Now it's working correctly. I'll try Android auto later.
Thanks guys 👊

Yes and battery optimization and battery saving settings. I did find that on wifi it's correct on 5G ask Google "where am I " and it says some random location.

only time I've ever had problems was when crossing the Mississippi from TN to AR...said I was out in the middle of the water (all that surrounding steel probably the culprit lol)
