    I have an original iPhone upgraded with the latest software and now the old-fashioned GPS can't find where I am. I press the button in the Maps application and it starts spinning and doesn't stop.

    Anyone else got this problem or, better still, a fix?

    Or, not uncommon this, am I being dim.

    The location feature on the original iPhone works for me since the 2.0 update. Try a restore if yours doesn't?

    Sorry chaps. I was talking about the Google maps location thing.

    I'll try a restore and see if that fixes it.

    The quasi-GPS on my original iPhone has changed significantly since the 2.0 updates. A lot of the time it simply fails to find my location, however (just like Steve Jobs once said) when it does work, it works brilliantly. Yesterday in Camberley it was amazing, as i was moving in the car it updated my location every few seconds- made finding the place i was going to a breeze.

    Well I tried a restore and... it made no difference whatsoever.

    Maybe I just keep being in the wrong places.

    weird. i've found that Maps.app works a lot better now that I've upgraded to 2.0. It even acts like a little pseudo-GPS and follows me as I drive.
