Our A3-A40 tablet has decided suddenly it is in Vietnam not in Spain where we live.

Our A3-A40 tablet has decided suddenly it is in Vietnam not in Spain where we live. Using our sat nav is now impossible. Have tried to reset location and maps without success.  Any ideas please?

    had you try to leave it for a while in an open enviroment with google maps open?
    maybe it has some issue on connecting to the GPS satellites, you can also check if GPS is working using an application like GPS test:

    Thanks, yes tried all those, GPS test does eventually find us but the moment we turn it off it forgets our position.  Why Vietnam?  we have never been there! Someone told my wife this is a common fault with Acer.

    already did a full factory reset?
    probably Vietnam is set as default GPS point on system files.

    No haven't done a reset, I'm bit wary.

    What I find difficult to understand why it should suddenly change when we have been using it with our campervan satnav system without a hiccup for a long time.

    Any new application installed?
    If not, it's hard to understand what happened.

    As last try...a factory reset is due.

    No new applications, so fingers crossed I'll try a factory reset. Thanks

    Tried a factory reset, it still thinks it is Vietnam

    No other ideas, sorry.
