How do i give GoogleMaps permission to use my location - I re-set Privacy in Settings to turn it on and Google Maps still says it doesn't have permission
If you check in Settings>privacy> Location Services> Google Maps - is it enabled?
When I go to Settings>privacy> Location Services, "Google Maps" doesn't show up
Are you using Safari google maps?
If your iphone is IOS 6.0 or higher then you won't have google maps, thus you won't be able to give it permission.
Assuming you're on iOS 6 where there is no Google Maps app, then you're using your browser to get to Google Maps. As such, the location service to allow is "Safari" or whatever browser you're using.
Settings>Privacy>Location Services and enable them for Safari.
Then try again.
Google maps on Safari asks for permission every time. (At least on my iPhone 4, 6.0.1).
