    First make sure you are connected to wifi and location services for maps is on. If it still can't determine location, it is probably because of your internet service provider (ISP).

    Some ISPs do not allow you to find the location or it does not support finding the location. Try some other wifi hotspots and see if it works. If it doesn't I recommend going to the Genius Bar

    I hope this helps

    Leon C., your ISP has nothing to do with locations services.


    For location the iPod uses the locations of nearby wifi routers that are in Apple's database. Apple adds routers using ifnormation obtained from iPhones and maybe iPods with a cellular radio.

    For talhakhan99, dos Maps show your correct location when connected/nearby other routers such as Starbucks or McDonalds?


    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Power off and then back on the router

    - Reset network settings: Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings

    IIIaass, interestingly, my ISP told me they were not allowing location services when I asked them.

    They activated it or registered with apple for me and now it works on all my devices while previously, they can't find the location at all

    By the way I live in Taiwan at the moment so maybe it had something to do with that
