Thanks for contacting BillionGraves. Android is a tricky operating system. Each device uses a different type of GPS. Our suggestion is this. 

1. Make sure you have the most updated version of the application. It can be found here. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.och.BillionGraves

2.Close out all applications using the phones GPS.

3. Check location services and make sure all 3 GPS features are on.

4. Contact your cell phone provider and have them enable third party application usage.
