    The Map App will not work if the iPod Touch is not connected to the internet through WiFi. The Maps draw strait from Google Maps. It is a Bummer

    Yeh, my Map App works, but I can't seem to locate myself on the map. I connect to Wifi, but it doesn't find my location. Could it be the fact that Map App was intended for the iPhone, and thus requires GPS? Or can you get a location from Wifi as well?

    Edit: I just tried searching a location and it told me a server error occured
