Google Assistant feed shows the wrong location on watch. 0 Recommended Answers 50 Replies 144 Upvotes

Swipe right to see Google Assistant feed, and it always shows the wrong location.  But when I tap on weather, navigation or "coffee nearby", the subsequent apps do show the correct location.  It's only the feed that is incorrect.  I have tried resetting the watch, clearing cache for the Google app, switching account.  Nothing worked.  Any idea why this is happening?  Thanks!

Hi Eli,
 
I saw another post on this subject so this may be an emerging issue. Before we go any further, can you verify that your work and home addresses are set correctly in the Google app on your phone at Menu > Settings > Settings > Personal info > Home & work locations?
 
And when the feed shows the wrong location, is it wrong like the other side of town or a different city altogether?
 
Thanks!
John

Thanks for the reply!  Yep I do have the correct home and work addresses.  Upon further investigation, I suspect this could be a problem with Google Assistant itself.  On my Pixel phone, I open up Google Assistant and go to the feed, it also shows a wrong location, although not as far off as what's on the watch.  First I thought my phone's location service is off. But then like I said, when I open any other apps that uses location, they're all good.  The only app that has the issue is Google Assistant.

Eli,

Interesting finding. Are the locations shown in Assistant (on the phone and the watch) perhaps locations you've visited earlier in the day? I'm wondering if the location is way off or if it might not be updating in a timely manner.

Since it seems to be Assistant-specific, you might also want to check in at the new Google Assistant community to see if they have any other ideas.

Cheers,
John

Nope, the wrong location isn't a place I've ever visited, as the Google Assistant feed shows I'm literally in the middle of a river.  LOL.  I'm really curious where it's getting that location from!!!  I've flagged this to Google.  I might try re-pairing the watch with a different phone when I get a chance.

For me the same issue. And if i want to navigate to this direction, Assistant sends the wrong GPS format to Google Maps. Like xx,00000,xx,00000 inst. of xx.00000, xx.00000. So Maps show me an error b. not found the direction

Exactly the same here (Switzerland)... every morning the Watch (Tag Heuer Connected Modular 41, last Wear OS and G app update) is warning me that it's going to take 7 hours to go to work... and as for other User "if i want to navigate to this direction, Assistant sends the wrong GPS format to Google Maps. Like xx,00000,xx,00000 inst. of xx.00000, xx.00000."
Everything is fine with my home and work locations in Maps, in Assistant feed on the phone, and everywhere but the Assistant feed on the watch...

Get the same thing, the current location GPS seems to be off for the timeline view.  I live in BC, Canada and when I'm in Burnaby, the timeline says North Vancouver.  Tapping on the tile for weather when brings up the full weather with the proper location.  Same thing when I'm at home, it shows the location as another city.

My Moto 360 2nd connected to a Oneplus 3t has exactly the same issue. Tried changing home location and turning off 'use phone location' to no avail....

Same issue here. Shows St Lucia, Brisbane instead of The Gap, Brisbane. St Lucia is about 5 km away from me.
