Oreo 8.1: WiFi scanning under location settings cannot be turned on

The WiFi scanning option under location settings cannot be turned on. After I switched it on, leave the setting page and reenter the setting page, the option is showing as off again. The Bluetooth scanning option is working properly. So now when there is poor GPS signal like indoor or in basement, the location comes from mobile network only but not from WiFi scanning (unless I turn on WiFi) and the location is not accurate.

I have the same problem too!
Yes, just checked and it's the same for me. Make sure you send it in via feedback app

Yes I agree this appears to be a bug. My wife's HTC 10 on Oreo does not have this issue. Down to HMD to fix this
