    Hi,
    I have recently moved to a different city in the UK. I have a home wifi network made up of 2 Airport Extremes. During the move, I moved the airport extremes and only changed cable providers. (so, same Wifi network, same BSSID, same MACs, different IPs).

    Now my iPhone/iPads are still positioning me in my old city when I'm inside my house (and therefore no GPS signal).

    is there any way to reset the wifi location database that Apple uses?
    thanks.

    What happens when you walk outside but stay within wifi range? Is that possible?

    If so I'd try turning wifi on and off when you get GPS reception.

    I get located properly. But then after a few minutes (I don't know - like 15-30 minutes) I get located back in my old place.

    It might not work, but you could try changing your SSID.

    Hmm sorry I can't help more. If it hasn't been very long I'd try to wait and see if it automatically corrects itself. It had to learn that wifi was at your old place so it should be able to relearn.
