My iPod touch shows my current location at a former address. It's been two months since I've moved. How do I correct this?

iPod touch, iOS 5.1.1

    For location the iPod uses the location of nearby wifi routers that are in Apple's database. You do not have to be connected to the network/router to use that router's location. Thus, it appears that the iPod can't see a nearby router that is in Apple's database. Apple continuously updated their database based on info they obtain from iPhones. No one has been able to find a way to inform Apple of a router or correct is location.


    You will just have to wait until Apple updates their database.
