Have tried that too.
Can't even get the right time zone.
Location of an iPad is retrieved from Apple's database. If your router is comparatively new, Apple has no way to get your location instantly from the database, so that may be the problem. It will eventually be updated. The time varies from a few days to a few months to detect your wifi router, and even a year to get your exact location. Even my location isn't exactly accurate after a year of my being with the iPad.
Did you buy a new router recently?
I got a new AirPort Extreme last year. The iPad Locations worked with it for several months. Then they just quit last month.
I also submitted my location and MAC address to Skyhook.
Have you tried taking your iPad Air for a ride to a built-up area with one or more WiFi signals present? If your locations service still doesn't work even after doing a reset, then it probably is the Air.. In that case, I'd suggest returning it to Apple... '
But if you do get a location showing up with other WiFi signals nearby, then it's most likely that your location has some how 'fallen off' the database...
Will try that tomorrow.
It does work away from home.
That almost certainly means that the lack of location services while on your home WiFi is almost certainly the fault of your router. Is it possible for you to disconnect your router and try a different one?
If I try a different router I have to call my provider & change lots of settings.......I will wait a while and see if Skyhook works. Thank you for your help.
