Over the past two or three days, whenever I go to use Google Maps, the locator thinks Im in Seattle. The problem with that - Im at home in Metro Detroit! Even when Im outside, with a clear shot at the sky, the GPS doesnt seem to lock in. I just get the .25 mile circle guesstimate of my location - which is always in Seattle as well.
I have turned off my WiFi, thinking that maybe it was pulling up an errant IP Location from a neighbors WiFi - but still even on 3G Google Maps thinks Im in Seattle, not Metro Detroit.
Any guesses at why its doing that?
Is it a hardware issue? Something I should schedule some time with a Genius at the local Apple Store to have them investigate?
I do use the locator a lot when Im using Google Maps, and Im hoping to use other GPS location APPS as they become available. So if this is a hardware issue, I need to go get it straightened out to use my iPhone like I want to.
