For what it's worth, I'm not seeing that (a need to manually refresh location). Also, sounds like this may have been tried, in effect, when making sure the device was getting a position fix via location settings.
I'm wondering about apps installed that use the camera or interact with the camera app. I think I would try a security wipe and select to delete user installed apps. Then test.
