    What do you mean it doesn't work. Do you only get the "ginormous" circle that shoes a general area of where you might be instead of the pinpoint location?

    If so, are you indoors or outside? And how long do you wait before deciding that it's broken? I've found that if I'm inside, it doesn't seem to pinpoint my location (but I haven't waited more than maybe 2 minutes). If I'm outside it can generally find me pretty quick and follow my movement.

    Keep in mind that with a normal GPS system, it can take several minutes for it to get a good connection to satellites to start transmitting location data. The same is the case with the GPS in the iPhone.
