    I am having issues with location services. Worked fine for several months then all of a sudden quit.
    Didn't change any settings on router or iPad.
    Any ideas?

    Have you tried resetting your iPad? To do so, press and hold the power and home buttons until the screen goes black and the Apple logo appears, then release both buttons. When the iPad restarts see if the problem is still there. If that doesn't work, you could try restating all settings. No data will be lost if you try it. Here's how to do it. Go to Settings>Reset>Reset All Settings. You will lose things like WiFi passwords and website log in passwords.

    None of the location services will work. Siri, weather, maps, etc. Worked when I first got the iPad and now will not.
    I have reset, hard reset, reset network settings, reset router, etc.

    Maybe location services has been turned off in settings. Go to Settings>General>Restrictions>Location Services and check to see if the location services switch is turned on.image.jpg

    I never said you were. I was just trying to cover the possibilities. Location services have been known to have been accidentally turned off for other members, which is why I made the post.

    Sorry. Just SO annoyed at this iPad. It crashes constantly due to low memory issues and now this location stuff.

    How about trying this, if you haven't already tried it. Enable restrictions, turn off location services, then turn them on again.
