Dell XPS 15 9560 Location Inaccurate Issue

Hi guys,

I am facing a problem that my Dell XPS 15 9560 always provide me with wrong location in google maps. Is there any GPS module in Dell XPS 15 9560?

I heard that PC/Laptop usually determines its location using IP address. Since I am using a mobile data hotspot at home, could it be the reason for the inaccurate location?

I am sorry if I posted this in the wrong session. Thank you for reading.

Try connecting directly to your broadband wifi instead of using the mobile hotspot. Then retest.

Hi Chris,

Thank you for your reply.  I do not have broadband WiFi available at my place at the moment. I will try it after I have it later.

What about testing the XPS 15 9560 WiFi at Starbucks or some other store. Then test the google maps.
