    Google Location Services seems to be working again as of this morning (around 11AM CDT/4PM GMT). 72ka's app works and centers properly. Dash Weather also works, and Localscope (well, the location part of it anyway).

    Did you have GPS off? Make sure Use GPS is off, reboot, and try again. I tried that and it didn't work. Still get the same error "All requests failed because an invalid protocol version was detected in the response".
    Did you know:

    webOS ran on a Treo 800 during initial development.

    So, turn off "Use GPS" but leave "Google Services" on? I'll try that.

    Earlier, GPS was on. In Location Services, I turned off Google Services a couple of days ago and tried to use some of the GPS-reliant apps just off of the TP 4G's GPS, but they still didn't work. WebOSM would even crash the tablet if I tried to run it. Between a couple of forced reboots, I turned Google Location on again. I couldn't tell you if I did anything else, but it was working all day.

    I just turned on one of my TP Go's, one I've barely played with (I keep meaning to ask someone how to take a system image of it before I load it up, since it has 3.0.6 on it), and I just checked Location Services on it. Google Services has never been turned on, and there's an opt-in window that pops up when I open it. I didn't turn it on. Can I send you anything from when I do? Would that help? I always feel badly that I can't do much to help with anything around here, and I'd like to if I could.

    Yeah.... If the device has a hard GPS fix, it will favor that. More accurate. I am sitting by a window at work, so I can get a ok GPS fix from my desk. I know exactly what the issue is with the Google service. The API endpoint still exists, but it looks like it just has not been updated, so it sends something back to the phone that is the incorrect version and the phone just dumps it. :/ I'm working out a fix from two sides; force the phone to use a custom location proxy that will translate to Google's new API, and just re-implement Location Services. (Hopefully sharing with LuneOS, but we'll see.)

    Preemptive, Misj' and gazaud like this.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled and the location request came up and it acted appropriately..

    Just a quick thought: Given the title of the thread, do MS have a location service? Or maybe Here maps?

    I'm not saying that making a fix to use these in place of Google will be easier (though it might be if gmaps is hidden in play services), but also if they are open APIs, they could be optional 'plugins' to the rewritten service described above.

    Just a note from the last meeting: It was reported that LuneOS uses a service called Geo-clue, which can support Google & Mozilla location services. However, it requires Dbus & systemd, so may be too much effort to port to webOS (though I have a feeling Qupzilla may use Dbus).

    Misj' managed to get a app to use Mozilla services, so it may be a case of using a similar technique at the system level.

    I just noticed something from the page about the Qt browser
    https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtlocation-index.html

    Any use?

    Comment on the Qt browser thread suggests the QT option may need a back end service.

    So we are back to... Geoclue!

    Here's a link to that: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/geocl...lue/wikis/home

    I saw this from last month. Perhaps developers of alternative mobile operating systems would want to do something...
