I've tried to turn my location services on and still cannot be located.


iPod touch (4th generation), iOS 6.1.3, No location services at all!!!!!

    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 can confirm that by going to place with a know located router like Starbucks or McDonalds

    I realize that but even when I go into maps, it cannot locate me I'm connected to wi-fi as I speak, there must be something wrong. The arrow never even comes on in the status bar. Fix the update.

    As I said, does it work with commom, well-known networks that are in Apple's database like Starbucks or McDonalds?

    No why do I have to be at one of those places when I never had to be before? It used to work while I was home. Now it doesn't ever come on. Not even on FB when I'm trying to give people an idea where I live via location services. It doesn't work plain and simple, what more can I say!!?

    As I said in my first reply " Thus, it appears that the iPod can't see a nearby router that is in Apple's database. "
