Google Maps update in Android 4.1

Go to the site and get sizzling hots 77777 at our casino. Limited supply

The latest update to my sizzling hot (Android 4.1.2 on a Nexus S) bumped quick hits slots online to 6.14.1 and seemingly disabled my GPS.

Please enable Google apps location access

That was all I had to go on. No link to perform said action, just a temporary on-screen notification which did nothing when pressed.

I checked in Settings → Location access and everything looked fine. I rebooted and it made no difference. Twitter could still access the GPS so it wasn’t a hardware problem.

Turns out there’s a new toggle in Settings → Accounts → Google → Location settings which is off by default and needs to be on.

So Google have pushed out a release which disables GPS and creates a new, non-obvious, toggle to enable it. Hopefully this post helps someone who hits the same problem.
