When I'm traveling through a city, as long as there are wifi networks nearby (even if they are secured with a password), my iPod Touch can determine my current location with great accuracy—obviously not as well as a GPS can in the iPhone, but still very well.

 

How is it able to do this exactly? Could someone explain the technical side of this, or does anyone actually know how this works?


iPod touch, iOS 6, 5th generation (2012)
