    REMOVE THIS NOW! THIS IS BAN MATERIAL.

    This is illegal material and you CAN be sued by apple for it.
    You can also easily get banned.

    Keep the changes, but the APPS are not okay to post.

    It probably has to do with the new GPS files found.

    No.
    There is no GPS. The iPhone doesn't even have GPS, plus GPS requires Hardware. Which the iPod touch and iPhone do not have.
    This "Locate Me," refers to the whole maps 1.1.3 update that allowed one to locate themselves via Wi-fi beacons, and with the iPhone, Wi-fi and cell phone tower beacons.

    There will be no bluetooth in the iPod touch along with the 2.0 update. Bluetooth, like GPS, requires hardware that the iPod touch simply DOES NOT have. So no Bluetooth or GPS.

    No it did domething different, on an ipod touch it was supoosed to get close to where you where but only in very heavy wifi, or known wifi hotspots,. It never located me at my house, not on any firmware all the way up to 1.1.4. It did not work before I installed version 2.0 which got my location perfectly. Now I supposed that at the same time I installed 2.0 they where passing by my street mapping hte area, yeah right.

    Google and Skyhook are constantly going around.
    In between the time you installed 1.1.3 and 2.0, they obviously expanded their databases, and that update has been incorporated into the new firmware.
