    Can't find own location on Wifi-only Ipad2?

    As in title, I have a Wifi-only 64Gb Ipad2 and when I try to get my location on Maps, I get the message "Cannot determine location". I realise that I have not got GPS but I thought that my location could be established through Wifi triangulation? I have tried to search on here but can't find the answer. I have been to Settings and checked that Location Services is on. I am connected to my Wifi at home. Is there something I am not doing or is it not possible?

    Thanks for any help.

    Fantastic, thanks. I turned it off and on and it located itself when I tried Maps again. It didn't occur to me to power off and on as I hadn't done it since I got it 3 weeks ago. Thanks again.
