I cannot access my exact location on the maps.

I Have registered in a social media app where it needs to access my exact location. I have tried downloading other map app like google maps but still it cannot determine my location. i tried using other Ipad and they can access thier location And we are using same Router of internet provider. I need a bigtime help. Thanks.

If you have the WiFi-only iPad (which does not have GPS) your location is determined by the mapped location of nearby WiFi routers. A WiFi+Cellular iPad or an iPhone have GPS and can locate themselves.
Without GPS iPad location-finding is done by using a Apple location database which contains the MAC addresses of routers and their physical location. A MAC address is a unique number which is built-in to all network devices when manufactured. No two routers have the same MAC address.
The Apple database is built and updated by Apple GPS-enabled devices (primarily iPhones) actually seeing routers and then adding/updating the router's locations into the database. There is no manual way to request an update to the Apple location database.
Note, to be used for location determination, a device does not need to actually be connected to a router, it just has to see the router and its MAC address. More precise location determination can be done if several nearby routers can be seen.
When a router is moved from one location to another erroneous locations can sometimes be reported until the router's location is corrected in Apple's database. If a router's location has not been added to Apple's database the iPad will not be able to locate its position.

    My i Pad 3 shows "cannot Access Find My Friends open the app and review your sign in information to continue sharing your location. And I have two buttons : Later and Open but they don't work. As long as I have this screen situation, I cann't do anything on my I Pad. Please help !!

    I have the same problem on my iPhone4. It is obviously a bug in the software. Once it pops out I am locked out of my phone. I can't even begin to describe the frustration this causes. All that stuff about holding down the buttons is useless. the phone won't even shut off. I can take a screen shot like that or go to voice control. Even when I got to a wifi connection, I can't get on. This app blocks everything else. This is a serious bug and can have serious consequences. The only thing my phone would do is go to voice control and let me play iTunes or phone people. Some smart phone hey?
    I have finally got to a place with a wide enough wifi to connect my computer and restore the phone. This has lasted over a day!
    I don't even know why Find My Friends is on my phone. Is it part of the package and how do I turn it off?

    I have an I phone 4. When I bought it the google maps app came pre installed. I am in the process of adding thousands of customers into my stock contacts app. Sometimes I want to drop a pin in an exact location on the property. I drop it, assign it to the contact, leave the app, and then come back into the contacts app and click on the address. It then takes me into google maps where I constantly discover that the pin has moved. It often moves off the property of the addresss or building I dropped a pin on. I am trying to solve this. I want that pin to stay in the exact location that I dropped it. Can somebody please help?

    Sorry. There's nothing anyone can do. The current version of the facebook app will not run on 4.2.1. The iPhone 3G won't run anything higher than 4.2.1. You're stuck.
    Maybe it's time to buy yourself a new iPod Touch.

  • My iPad "cannot determine location" on the map.

    My iPad "cannot determine location" on the map. Location services is turned on for all apps.  Why doesn't this work, and how can I fix it?

    If you have the wifi-only model then your location is determined by the router that you are connected to being in the database that Apple uses - only the 3G model has a built-in GPS chip. If you have an iPod that is able to get a location via your router then you could try Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings and then reconnect to the network and see if the iPad then gets a location.

  • TS1702 Why is the icon for street view not showing up on the left side of the location on the maps app?

    Why is the icon for street view not showing up on the left side of the location on the maps app?

    Because the included Maps app no longer gets the maps data from Google, so no more street view.
    You can get a free Google Maps app from the iTunes App Store.

  • Does the app find my ipod work if the lost ipod has a dead battery? will it correctly pinpoint the location on the map??

    Will the find my ipod app work if the lost ipod has a dead battery? will it still pinpoint the location on the map correctly?

    The iPod must be on and connected to the internt via wifi. It will locate to the nearest house. For location it uses the location of nearby wiri routers that are in Apple's database.

  • IMovie cannot access library without location services - Why?

    So this is the error message I get when trying to use iMovie for iPhone - "iMovie cannot access your photos or videos" "To enable access, open the settings app, tap General, then tap Location Services and then set the iMovie switch to 'On'." (pic - http://twitpic.com/2269ze ).The question is "Why?" What if I don't want my videos to include geo location data? Why does iMovie need location services to start a project? It doest make any sense to me. I understand that some of the themes may have features for using location data, but shouldn't that be at the users discretion?

    I find this rather odd as well. I keep location services turned off for the camera so why iMovie would need to access data that isn't there is beyond me. I think it's just poor programing on Apple's part. It would be just as easy to ignore any location data if you have that turned off and you happen to pick a picture or video that has it embedded.

  • Cannot access gradient tools other than the default option.

    I am using photoshop CS6 extended. I cannot access the alternative gradient tools and am wondering if the plug-in failed to download or if I have somehow disabled them in the preferences.

    Select the gradient tool, then click on the gradient chip at the top left of the screen to open the Gradient Editor, or click on the little arrow next to the same gradient color chip to access a palette other gradients. To make a new gradient, etc., click the tiny icon in the upper right of that palette to get a drop-down menu.

  • VPN clients cannot access to Remote location

    I have setup the VPN remote access to ASA 5520. The login is working. The users can access to the local network. But they can't access to the remote network through the tunnel. Is it the NAT setting need to be set for the tunnel or the VPN client to allow the VPN client access to the remote network?
    Thanks                  

    Hi Chieu,
    There are couple of questions I have for you that might help me to help you too!
    First what software code are you using?
    Can you post a descent config of your device?
    Do you have multiple vlans in your network?
    Did you implement routing for your remote vpn subnet to access the lan?
    What is your topology like?
    Once I get a good grasp of these we might be able to resolve your problem together.
    Thanks
    Teddy
