    It's a "x.x.1"

    Nothing will be different, really. Very minor value place.

    That usually means it's having some troubles locating you. Does it do this all the time?

    This happens in a couple of situations. If you have GPS turned off or it hasn't yet located a sufficient number of satellites to locate you specifically, it will use either the nearest cell tower (with a big blue circle) or the GPS info it has managed to snag to give a less than precise location (again with the blue circle.)

    This is becoming a serious pet peeve of mine: developers, big or small, not publishing their release notes. Can't stand it lol
