    the google maps location shows me as somewhere in california. but i am actually in new hampshire. how can i fix this. its annoying to find friends and stuff in apps that are actually far away from me.

    Find me depends on your wifi connection being known to the provider. Unfortunately I don't remember the name. a search via mroogle will help you.

    that's because it works off skyhook and skyhook isn't that reliable. for me it shows up 21.7 miles away from my actually location. you can try to correct by going HERE. but even after you submit it, it can take weeks before it shows up and even then it could still be wrong.
