I updated the Android version on my Samsung S9 today (that fake 5G), and it broke the Google Maps app on Android Auto. When I plug in my phone, everything loads correctly.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have exactly the issue since the latest update.
Google Maps on VW Discover Pro turns green with the message "Google maps needs you to change your location settings. When it's safe, check the notification on your phone".
Google location services are enabled...
Wait for feedback from Samsung...
I used the "Restore" option, and restored the Google Maps setting using data from Samsung Cloud. Google Maps went back to normal, working perfectly fine again. On the flip side, I'm done with this update, it is horrible to say the least.
Thank you so much for this suggestion! Turning off the power saving mode also fixed my issue as well!! Glad to know my long hours of searching and trying to do troubling shooting the Google location setting is officially over!
You are an absolute genius, thankyou so much, now i can save fuel and demerit points by getting to exactly where i need to go without a big detour
Just found out if you disable the "Energy Save Mode" completeley Google Maps and Waze works without issues.
I am having this same issue and have been searching for the past few days for a solution. I'm glad to know I am not alone. I've searched for hours trying to find a solution, but cant seem to find absolutely anything on the issue.
