    Do you have location services turned off in settings? also the app will ask if you want to allow location services. After 3 times it wont ask you any more.

    This happened to me. Discovered after researching it was because I had installed ssh from cydia and this is a known side effect of that.

    You are lucky then mate.

    "Many iPad jailbreaker reported broken location services after using spirit on their iPad WiFi, i.e. if you jailbreak a WiFi iPad and then attempt to use an app that wants to prompt you to use your location, you get a failure message. The problem is due to an unfixed bug in OpenSSH."

    thats the wifi only ipad, our 3G ipads have an actual GPS in them for location. Wifi ipad guess's your location.

    I have the same problem after do open ssh. I don't know how to fix it so that I do the hard reset. After hard reset, my devise cannot boot. It stuck at apple logo with 2 small lines at the edge of the screen. I have to do the restore from iTunes. Now, my GPS works again. Just want to share. I don't for sure that SSH cause it but this my story. Hope that someone might know better solution.

    Airport Mode

    I had the same issue with finding my location after I used the airport mode. Was able to get it working by rebooting the system. It was strange I had ATT 3G network and a clear sky above but no location. Rebooted the system and every thing came back.
