VZ WiFi Connect Will Prevent GPS From Working With Other Apps


I am going to Europe next month and a few weeks ago I downloaded and installed VZ WiFi Connect.  Then I simultaneously noticed that Google Maps was not able to connect to my GPS immediately.  It often took 5 minutes or more. I spent hours reading on fixes and performing useless fixes that didn't work.   I finally read somewhere that the problem was most likely caused by a recently installed app.  I went through my apps and disabled VZ WiFi Connect and the phone was instantly fixed.  DO NOT DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL THIS APP.  I can't believe that Verizon released it without testing it for such a bad defect.  So many wasted hours trying to fix my phone. I have a Galaxy S4.
