    Anytime I go onto google maps, and click the button that finds your position... it fails... both on the iPhone and iPod Touch... anyone know why?

    well the GPS locator doesn't work on iPod Touch. It may not be working on your iPhone either because Location Services is turned off, or poor signal.

    Hmm

    So why do I have the option on my iPod to find my location, if it doesn't work lol...

    Loc Services is on, wifi on it isn't working though..

    Kind Regards

    The touch uses Wi-Fi positioning to locate you - no GPS. The iPhone 3G has GPS... so there may be a hardware issue.

    Hmm, how do I tell, should I call the store I bought it from? it just says when I try and find my location 'your location could not be determined' ?

    Same message for the iPhone 3G o_O

    Edit: after connecting iphone to another network of ours, it works fine, for the location finding thing, but my iPod still does not..

    Kind Regards
