    Mine doesn't work at all. It will try searching for 2 minutes and then just say "Cannot find your current location". By the way can you pick me up one of those souvenir bow and arrows that the tribes over there use?

    I had to submit my location to Skyhook (?) I think it's called. After the 2.2 update it picks me up.

    When Im home, it gets me spot on (it highlights my whole block). When I go to work, it messes up by about 30 miles. Other times it flat out cant find me. Guess thats another advantage of the iPhone over the touch? :D
