    I have an ipad 3 and since ios 6.1 ,I can't locate myself on the map,even siri is not working when I ask her the weather,it says to turn on location services and siri. I took 2 screen shoots down below,btw,I restored clean from itunes and now I am on 6.1.2 and still not working.I know siri understood "who's the weather..." instead of "how's the ..." but still...

    So,I write again on this thread to say that my problem is not fixed on iOS 6.1.2, everything started after updating to iOS 6.1 and I can't not think that apple is doing this on porpoise to make ipad 3 users buy an ipad 4.Hope I am wrong.

    Have you tried restoring the iPad as new, without restoring the backup, and see if it works then?

    BTW it didn't happen on mine, location services working fine on the iPad 3 with iOS 6.1.2.

    I give up...
    I tried restoring from backup, hard reset, soft reset, backing up from iTunes, wiping the ipad several times... Talking to apple twice, buying a new router...
    Talking to my ISP ...
    Following every darn forum tip I can find...
    Turning on off resetting everything fron location services to router upgrades...

    But I noticed that my wife's laptop has stopped showing our location as well...
    (Hers is windows based)

    I even took the ipad to a wi fi hot spot and guess what?
    It worked there...
    In conclusion it has to be my isp or something snapped in the last update...
    Good luck and may the force be with you

    I restored as new ipad,resetted everything and nothing,I even connected my ipad to my iPhone's hot spot,3G,and still nothing,but...I don't even know why I am trying to fix this,I don't even use l Services,I just fell that my ipad is bad from factory but that can't be cause on iOS 6.0.1 it worked well.

    For me it's because like you mine was working before the last 2 updates and everyone Apple, ISP router all blame each other but we cannot find a solution to the problem...

    In my opinion it must be some conflict with the router or ISP since the updates.
    But that does not explain why my wife's windows based system has stopped showing location or why the ipad works in a wifi hotspot (McDonald's )
    I will call apple one last time this week...

    Good luck I will post if I can resolve it
