    I have an iPhone 3gs and when I go to my google maps app it tells me I am at a wrong address it tells me I'm about 8 miles away from where I really am how would I fix this issue? I've reset all the settings network and what not and also my iPhone to factory settings. It used to tell me just about a week ago that I was where I actually was but now it tells me I'm about 8 miles away giving the wrong my location. Thanks for the help btw I live in Tucson az

    Try again right now but outside your home. If it still throws at you a wrong address I would suggest calling Apple or visiting an Apple Store.

    i have this problem when at home too -- it uses wireless networks to help identify your location. when i had my first iphone, i lived about a mile away from where i do now and often when at home (currently) still gives me my old homes location -- the moment i leave home, its correct. this is a common problem, google it...
