    Facebook and other app not detecting location

    Hi--

    I've got two apps not working properly as of the last couple days. One is Facebook [but only the "Places" feature, won't let me check in] and the other is Endomondo, a sports-tracking app that measures exercise. It does not matter if I turn on the GPS or not, it just keeps telling me it's detecting my location settings or in the Facebook app, "loading" but no action.

    I had to have bumped a setting somewhere, but darn if I can find it.

    I've tried clearing the cache of both, reinstalling the facebook app, trying a like app for facebook called FriendCaster....messing with a few settings....removing both from the auto-end list in task manager....pulling the battery and several reboots before that. No changes.

    If anyone has any idea how to get my Atrix back to normal and working, I'd be a very happy lady!

    Thanks.

    Juno

    Hi Juno and welcome to the forums!

    Just to check, under Settings > Location & security, you have both choices under My Location checked? The Wireless Networks option allows it to try find you when indoors where a traditional GPS signal isn't available, but a wireless network might be.

    Other than that, I'm not too sure.

    Yay! You got it!!! Both work fine now. Thanks a million .....Pretty sure I now know what I did, I was fiddling with stuff and I bumped it. Will be much more careful.
