I live in Northern Virginia, about 40 min from Washington DC. Last week as I was driving to work, I looked at my Beautiful Home widget, it stated my location was Chicoutimi. Not sure how it said that, so I went in to Refresh the widget, the location updated to say I was now in Saint-Simon-les Mines.
So I turned the phone on/off. Location still said Saint-Simon-les Mines. Not knowing where these 2 places are, I goggled them and discovered they are just outside of Quebec.
Later in the day when I returned to my car, my location was correct.
Last night, I was lying in bed. Glanced at my phone and saw it said I was in Pine Creek. Again, a location I had never heard of. Just out of curiosity, I opened c:geo, which I use for geocaching. It was still set to locate caches near my house. The distances were about 450 miles away. I refreshed the nearest caches and saw that they were all located near Pine Creek, Indiana. Five minutes later I refreshed the widget, and my location was again correct.
So in the past week, my phone has mistakenly thought I was located in both Quebec and Indiana. Both places that I have never been. has anyone else had any problems with their GPS being off by 100s of miles? Anyone know why this is happening?
I usually don't have any problems with my GPS, its usually really accurate. I've noticed its accurate within 7-10' when I use the GPS for geocaching.
