    Has anyone figured out how to get the iPod to find your location in Google Maps?

    I've noticed that it can be found on some networks that obviously weren't scouted by SkyHook, and I want to get it going on my home network. Naturally it's more of a showcase thing because clearly I know where my own house is.

    I think the best areas are domain name under internet and location under options, but I've yet to find anything out.

    Wow, thanks 11800506 (nice name!). I've added my Airport and hopefully it'll be on in a few days.

    I added our network to Skyhook on sat. Now the wheel just spins and nothing happens. Anybody else experience this?

    Mine has done this, but I think that was because I hadn't added it to the database. I suggest just waiting a few more days.

    I figured I'd give it till the end of the week. It kinda sucks showing friends my new touch without being able to show them the locator.

    Wow, strange. The locator thing works perfectly for me and ive never put my router on that site. It's not exact, but it finds my crossstreets perfectly and I live in freakin Idaho.
