    Does one find their position? I can't find any page/link to just get a position fix????

    For me it works automatically in Wifi mode... once you've got your account in Navizon, enter your details on the main screen. From then on it briefly shows you that login screen and starts finding you.

    For me it finds my position in wifi mode within about 5 seconds and it's amazing how close it is...within about 20 meters but you need to be able to see other routers for it to work - install NetStumbler to see what your iphone can see...

    I'm in a urban area so there's at least 4-6 routers active here.

    I find it useless if your going to use just the wi-fi. It would be great to use while driving.

    @flyingstar Are you on the website or using the app? It only works using the APP which you have to install to you iPhone...

    @JoeJITSU It works using both cell towers and wifi but reports the method that primarily used... mine always says WiFi becuase I guess thats what it uses the most... I'll find out in the hills how good the cellular tower triangulation is..

    I haven't tried driving with it as I don't think it supports continuous update...but for walking it's fantastic..

    Make sure when you are entering your password on your phone, you are not making the first letter a capital. The phone automatically caps the first letter when you start to enter it.

    The only time it has worked for me was when I was on the move. Maybe it works on triangulation, so sitting still doesn't give it a chance to calculate a true position?

    I used it last weekend, and driving down Beach Blvd, it found me 7-8 times I opened it.

    I find it works best, when not using Wi-Fi..

    It could be coincidence, but it's worked everytime I do a find, when not on a wi-fi network..

    It's definitely an app with potential. I just hope the developer doesn't give up because the 1.1.1 fiasco.
