    I live in a crowded city, but maps works fine, the combination of wifi and coarse GPS does a great job of finding my location. However, when I try to use apps like Joyity, Rah (Restaurant Guide) and orienteering it uses a location about 100 miles from here that I was last at about 3 days ago.

    why aren't those apps (several of which i just got) using my new GPS location?

    thanks,

    I've had no real problems with the GPS yet. It seems to get my location pretty quickly.

    Only thing I can think to do is restart your phone or turn off GPS. Mabey turn off GPS, restart, turn it back on and see what happens.
