Gps on samsung s6

Can someone point me to instructions on how to get the gps working.
I have enabled it, but it isn't giving the correct location. I am in Canada not the US as it shows.

It seems that the GPS has no fix yet ?? Maybe try to wait for a while and be sure you have some view of open sky.

Petter

Yes I got this working now - newbie mistake. As you suggested I had no fix.
I downloaded a gps app which showed the fixes...moved near a window and all worked.
As a reference to others the gps indicator goes green when you have a fix.
