    What country do you live in? The Locate Me feature is powered by Skyhook Wireless, which, according to company officials, covers 70% of population centres in the US and Canada, as well as metropolitan centres in Europe and Asia. If you live anywhere else, I doubt that the feature will work.

    Are you trying to locate in a hotspot or on your own personal wi-fi?

    Unfortunately for us, wireless routers that you can buy off the shelf don't come with any form of location finder. Maps will only find a location through a wifi hotspot like in a cafe or something.

    I have that same problem occassionally. However, I just try again and it appears to work fine. It's random.

    I have tried it in 4 different cities throughout the U.S and Canada. I have tried it probably 100 times in total, and it worked one time.

    Although it located me about 30 km from where I actually was. I don't think it works very well yet
