    I have location services on and allowed it but it says it can't determine my location! I have WiFi on and and mines jailbroken if that even matters!

    That's because the iPod touch doesn't have GPS.

    It might depend on the internet connection.
    I use 3G (Fixed Mobile Broadband) at home and the location service never works. But when I use a wired connection like ADSL, it works fine.

    What type of internet connection do you guys have?

    I have a iPod Touch 2G using wifi to connect to internet using DSL ISP. Location service works but is a little off. From Maps app, it shows the location centered at another house in my neighborhood, but it's within the blue circle (is the circle suppose to show the possible error in location service?).

    You have an iPhone though, use that for location?
