I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S7 to play this game as my son said it lagged a bunch on his S5. He finally gave up on the game and I took over his account. Since I have been playing the game I have noticed it will lock my location every once in awhile. After discussing this issue with another forum user he suggested I report it as a bug.
- I turn off my wifi so I don’t get lag when my phone finds an open wifi connection.
- My 4g LTE usually reads 3 to 4 bars
- When we arrived at the park to get TRex DNA the game freaked out.
Explanation : the park has 4 special event points, 3 where TRex but when I walked up to get closer the first TRex disappeared, I then walked towards the other two and the game lagged as if it was loading and then I got the “having trouble loading” popup which froze my game. I got frustrated and we went to another park where the game froze again so we came home. When I loaded the game at my house it loaded as if I was still at the second park even though we live 3 miles from it. I did take the opportunity to dart the TRex as I felt I was owed, after receiving the DNA the game paused and suddenly my map showed I was at my house. I will post screenshots and hopefully you can figure out why this happens. Thank you.

Added phone data… My wifi auto connects when I get home yet it didn’t refresh my location in the game until after getting the DNA screen
