    In order for the map to work again on your Windows 10 device, you need to make sure that the Location is turned on. Here are the steps:

    • Go to Privacy and then Location.
    • Turn Location on.
    • Scroll it down, make sure Maps is turn on under Choose apps which can use your location.

    Wrong location under Map App in Windows 10

    Hello Glastonbury,

    We regret the inconvenience and we understand the frustration when things don't go the way they suppose to. Let me assist you.

    From the description provided, I understand that Map App shows wrong "my location".

    As an initial recommendation, I suggest you to check for the latest updates in Windows 10 which helps the PC to make optimal use of Windows 10 capabilities as well as fixing any missing links in performance of the operating system.

    To check for updates now, go to Settings > Update & security > Windows Update, and select
    Check for updates. If Windows Update says that your PC is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available.

    To correct the location in the Maps App, you should ensure the location services are turned on, to do this, follow the steps below:



    Change the regional settings and check if the issue persists.

    a. Open Settings and type location
    and select Clear Location History.

    b. Clear the checkbox next to
    History on this device to reset the location information.

    c. Restart the PC and again open the Clear Location History
    page.

    d. Ensure to switch the toggle to 'on' for General Location and wait for the info to sync.



    However, if the issue is related to the functionality of the Map App, I
    suggest you to run the Apps troubleshooter
    and check if it helps.

    Write to us with the updated status related to Map app, for us to be bale to assist you further.

    Thank You.
