    Google maps used to do a great job pinpointing me to the dot all over the vancouver BC area. Now it will just get down to a approximate and woun't find my exact position (as seen on the image)

    What I've tried so far:
    - restore iPhone to factory condition in itunes
    - restoring using the back up file
    - restarting the phone by holding down the power button + home button
    - going to settings -> general -> reset and reset location warnings, network settings as well as reset all settings at one point
    - turn airplane mode on for 30 sec and then off again
    - turn location services off and on again
    - using google maps on a wifi network as well as 3G
    - checking with a friends iphone who uses a 3G iphone on the same provider and seeing that his phone pinpoints him to the dot.

    It used to work fine and i use this feature daily, but i am out of ideas, any help world be very appreciated

    I have a similar problem, when trying to follow a route I see the blue dot in the adjacent feild rather than on the road like it used to. A real pain.
