    I have two Blackberry 10 devices that both by GPS Location put me in a city 41 Km. From my real location.
    I have tried factory wipes turning location on-off but the same results.
    It started a couple of months back before it was spot on.
    Any idea anybody?
    Z10, Z30 devices.

    Had this problem on my z30. Seemed to be a problem with restoring application settings. I had to start with a clean z30. I couldn't use my z10 back up

    Well that's an odd one. Sorry but I can't help you. Just wanted to drop a useless fact.....

    If gps clocks didn't correct for the effects of relativity, GPS would be out 7 km .

    Maybe Einstein is screwing with your phone.

    After doing factory reset, did you do a restore from the original backup. I'm would if it was a bug of some sort and you are keeping it by doing a restore even after a factory reset.

    Just a guess here, but you may want to try leaving the gps/maps on for a few hours (with the phone plugged in, of course). The gps may be able to recalibrate by doing so, and a wipe would not be necessary.

    There seems to a partial solution for my GPS problem ,I downloaded the BeMaps that on the spot warned me that the compass could not line up ,metal interference being the problem.
    Stepping outside solved the issue and everything spot on.
    But with Be weather the problem persist,still out by 41 Km. Any ideas anybody?

    Have you turned WiFi on? The device might use WiFi info and stuff to do quick locating. Is the GPS fix accurate outside?

    I had a similar problem when I moved to a new city and took my WiFi access point with me. Some apps do still think I am at my old location (at least when I am inside) when I try to use maps inside. Once I go outside the GPS is accurate.
