"My Location" is incorrect on desktop computer. 0 Recommended Answers 9 Replies 0 Upvotes

I just purchased a new Moto phone with Android 8.0.  I have location set to "high accuracy" and I am logged into my Google account.  I am logged into my same Google account on my desktop using the Chrome browser.  In Google maps my saved places etc. are there but the blue dot is incorrect.  When I click the grey dot in the lower right, it moves the blue dot top a location within about a quarter of a mile from my real location (which is correct on my phone).  However, if I search for a business etc. then click directions it uses the old blue dot location.  

My phone knows my exact location and both my phone and desktop are logged in to the same Google account.  The desktop is using a Google browser.  Why is Google maps showing different locations?

This is a new device with a current version of Android. That thread was for a different device.  I am using a new device with a current version of Android, and Google Chrome as my browser.  That indicates there is a bug somewhere in Google Maps.

This is happening for me too, but with a Google Pixel 2. On my phone it's correct but in Chrome on my desktop, the blue dot is way off.

This is happening with me too. It puts me in the correct location on Maps on my phone (using Chrome), and the correct spot on Maps using IE on my desktop. But when I use Maps on my desktop using Chrome it says I'm thousands of kilometres/miles away. And none of these "fixes" in this Help Centre work.
