    For at least the second time, my Droid thinks my location is thousands of miles from where I am. I am in North Carolina and it says I'm in Las Vegas.

    I reset the phone, open Maps and select "My Location" - then it correctly finds my location. Still a pain, and strange that it puts me in Vegas every time.

    Maybe it's advertising. They want you to take a trip to Vegas. ;)

    That happened to me a few times too, not since the 2.0.1 update though. No idea how to fix it. You may be able to just turn the GPS off and on to correct it.
