    a friend @ school told me that the new iphone google maps app is able to use gps to locate where you are on the maps. is there anyway thiswould work on the iPoT or is this even true?
    im guessing you couldn't do it because there are no antennas...

    Its part of the 1.1.3 software update. For $20 you can buy the iPhone apps, and get the GPS which uses wifi location info to track you down.

    You have to be on wifi.

    Please search before u post.

    (Btw, I wouldnt pay the $20 until 1.1.3 is jailbroken, because we could possibly get it for free)

    The GPS wifi thing is stupid... I doubt it even works, I almost guarentee it will say your location is the location of the service provider... IE my location is in calgary, alberta, canada. When infact I live in edmonton, alberta, canada. This would be because my ISP's main office is in calgary. I am almost 100% sure, without using the application, thats what it will do, get the location of your ISP.

    I know that if you are on wifi on the iPhone, the location is very accurate. This however, is not as true when it is on EDGE. Although I haven't upgraded to 1.1.3 on the touch yet, I am almost certain that the location is more accurate than you make it out to be.

    The location has been very accurate for me. I have tried in many different locations around Montreal and the map showed a circle around my location each time I requested it.

    It's not GPS, it connects to a database of stored locations of Wi-Fi Networks.
