When I use my iPad with internet service through my verizon jetpack for some reason when I’m at home it thinks I’m in the Beloit wi area so that probably explains why my pin is about 250+ miles from where I live. If I use the jetpack on a different tower than my home it usually knows exactly where I am.
Right now I’m at McDonald’s in Medford using their internet which always knows exactly where I am but my pin is still showing way down by Beloit .
I have a weather app installed that has a button to press to show the weather at my exact location but I’ve learned not to press that button while at home because it will show me out in the ocean somewhere in an entirely different part of the world and it’s pretty difficult to even get it back to the USA .

Hmmmm….not being very "tech savvy", does that mean your pin moves with your internet service? So, if your phone is your computer, could they tell where you are?
With this member map, just click on your pin and move it wherever you like. The pin doesn't follow my computer or phone, when I was in Arizona my pin was still in Ontario.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not worried about it. Just wondering if it's service address, or GPS, that locates the pin. I subscribe to the Tim Kennedy opinion: "They can send whoever they want, as long as they don't want them back". :cool:
