Recently we've noticed that within Meraki Admin, when you click on a device, it no longer zooms the Google map into the location of the device. It just "remembers" the last location you were looking at. So you have to zoom right out to find the bubble. Then instead of it zoom in to where the bubble is, it zooms into where you previously were, so you have to drag until you get to the bubble.
REALLY annoying. Have Google changed the way their maps API works and you haven't updated the code to reflect this so we're getting this odd behaviour? Or is something else broken?
And how long before a device switches to being traced via GPS? I've turned off WIFI on my mobile now, leaving only GPS on. Yet 20 mins later Meraki is still trying to trace me via IP.
It's been 36 mins since Meraki decided to check my phones location (via IP despite me having turned WIFI off). So 36mins since switching to GPS. Why does Meraki seem to take forever to refresh or switch over to other location search methods?
Map still not working properly with the automatic zoom when clicking the bubble.
And a correction. When zooming in, the map zooms into the centre. Still makes it infuriating to use the map now.
The map on Meraki for some reason has trouble either getting to the right spot or pinning the location at times. I keep wondering why that happens.
I have the same issue, not that I don't enjoy scrolling around the USA to find the machines but yet another feature that does not work.
No one from Meraki at all? Is this forum community only? Been several days now with the WIFI off on my work phone yet Meraki still insists on searching for it via IP address so all known locations are wrong.
@Kevin_C I just checked mine as I have previously noticed this behavior and every iPad I checked, immediately zoomed in to the correct map location.
Please let the team know we appreciate the fix.
Thanks for the reply. The maps are now working, the GPS location still isn't even though the SM app has the correct permissions on the phones and runs in the background.
We'll raise a ticket.
