    Sometimes my GPS and Synch will show up as the wrong place. Example: Upon waking up my phone, it will randomly show me as being located in SHenzen, CHina (or something super similar to that). Anyone else had GPS/Location problems?

    Has no one really had this issue as of yet? I've searched forums for answers and haven't found anything as of yet...

    It's 9:25am in Irvine where I am and my phone was showing 12:25am and that I was located in Xhuzhou.

    Where are you getting this info? Maps? Weather widget?

    It's showing up in the clock and weather widgets.

    What happens when you open maps>menu>my location?

    I'd also take a look at the time and date: menu>settings>time and date - make sure that;s set for automatic

    When accessing Maps, it shows the correct location.
    This isn't something that happens all the time, but I am wondering if it is an HTC bug since it's on the HTC widgets for clock and weather.

    I, my father, and two coworkers of mine have the Droid Incredible, and we all have experienced the wrong location being displayed in the weather/clock widget. We've tried deleting the widget and re-adding it, and ensuring that the wi fi is off and the GPS satellite is detecting location, to no avail. I also use Foursquare, and am consistently detecting "nearby" locations that are over 120 miles away instead of the ones in my city. You're not alone....

    That's really weird.
    I've had a Droid since November and an Incredible for a couple weeks and the HTC weather/clock widget is the only weather app that actually finds my town.
    I wiped my phone (HTC) the first day I had it. I wonder if that has something to do with it.
