are you on the border? I noticed that my weather app sometimes gives me my city and a city right next to me. I am literally on the border so I can understand, even changes when I'm in different parts of my house, lol.

As for maps, I've heard that it can find your location via cell phone towers or wifi. I've only used GPS signals when i use maps and it gives me my exactly location correctly everytime.

Yup, happened to me. I turned on "use gps" and turned off "use wireless network" and I've been in the correct city ever since.
