    "Location Unavailable" GOOGLE.com

    What would cause google.com on the browser to say "Location Unavailable"? There is a link next to it that says "Update" but it does not.

    GPS is on..

    Anyone else? I almost think it was the update to 2.0.1 that did it, but I can't be sure.

    It is a Google (web page) bug, and has been around for quite a while (saw it on my G1 over the summer so, no it is not related to 2.01)

    Is there anyway to get it back working.. It was nice having Google know the location.

    Same thing here. It shows my location on maps, finds local things in search, just curious about this.

    google location typically uses your cell towers to determine where you are. if you're using wifi to browse in an area of low reception, or poor quality because locale can't triangulate your position, there is a possibility that you won't be identified.

    The problem lies within Google, not the Droid. It happens on many phones, including my G1, and I have seen threads with a similar complaint on crackberry.com, so it is not even Android specific. It is something broken in the web page.
