    So for the first time my iTouch was able to locate me five miles travel distance from my home (while at home), but now it places me back in Corona, CA when I'm connected to my home network. I tried resetting the thing and turning location services off and back on, only to find that it does the same thing. Would a restore fix this? Has this happened to any of you? What fixed it?

    location is very unreliable on devices without gps (ipods rather than iphones) because it relies on the wifi ip address to approximate where you are. it likely will not fix itself unless you can find a way to make your wifi network broadcast its location, but i dont know anything about that really.

    Thanks for trying to help, but the thing is it's not really my network's fault. The IP address did not change, for one. Two, I stated that it was fine for a moment.
