First off, make sure your phone’s location services are on and set to high accuracy. Sometimes, turning GPS on and off can do the trick too!

Did you try restarting the app? Might sound too easy, but it works more often than you’d think!

Check if you have a stable internet connection. Pokemon GO doesn’t play well with spotty Wi-Fi or data!

Switching between Wi-Fi and mobile data can help. Sometimes your Wi-Fi might be acting up.

Make sure you’re not using mock locations or GPS spoofing apps. Pokemon GO can detect these and will give you that error!
