    ive always had this problem with the ipod touch. It is because it cannot use cell networks to determine your location and must use wifi networks instead that are in public areas to determine where you are connecting from. In my experience home wifi networks don't work with find my location

    I had the same problem on my old 2G iPT. But my Wifi-only iPad is able to find my location just fine, so Wi-fi isn't the problem.

    Maybe backup and Restore?

    I have the same problem, it used to find my location perfectly.. Then it couldn't find it, and now its finding me on a street that doesn't even exist.

    It used to work when I registered my router with the service Apple used to use for locations via wifi hotspots. My iPod can locate me everywhere else, but ever since 4.0, it can't locate me at my house anymore.

    I believe this is because Apple is using their own location databases now, and something may have changed/not been moved or whatever.

    I'm still amazed at the Geotagging, though. At my School, I can't find any wifi spots, yet it still manages to tag the location of photos or videos I take.
