yesterday i tried the gps for the first time. everything was working fine until i went off route to stop for gas. when i got back on route the pin wouldn't move or track my location. is there any reason for this?

Did you try rebooting the iPhone?
or at least restarting the google maps app which would be much faster and more practical while driving lol. just hold the home button while in the map app and itll close after 8 secs then just re open it and try again
