    Hey all, I have an ipod touch running firmware 2.0 and google maps works, no crashing, buuuut.... (there's always but in these forums) but i notice when i "search" for certain things (like addresses) its not accurate. like at all.

    eg. I live in a little town in BC called Sicamous. When i search for my house address (### ???????? ave, Sicamous, BC, Canada) the address comes up on the map - but it comes up labled as Kelowna BC (a city 2 hrs from where i live) the map its showing up on is Sicamous though.

    so i tried searching just for "Sicamous" and the same mape came up, labled as sicamous, not kelowna. so i added ### ?????????? ave to the end of "Sicamous" and another pin showed up, but not where my house is located!!

    Why is google maps not correct on my ipod?? and how do i fix it??

    It needs several wifi connections to get a good fix on a location. Not so good out in the sticks.

    hm well that's disappointing - i wouldnt say the place i was looking for is "out in the sticks" but where i am right now (Nunavut) is... well... i can't imagine anyone who would live here willingly.

    Thanks for you help
