    When I go to work I connect to their wifi, when I do this it changes my location on my maps and weather bug. says I am in a different state. I thought there was an app to fix this but I cannot find it. Any help would be great.

    Did you ever resolve this? I'm having the same issues with my work wifi.

    Not sure what could be causing this. I would try wiping cache, preferably back up your data and wipe data as well. Hopefully that will clear out some settings and allow it to re-align. Does it happen only at work or have you had this problem at other wifi spots?

    What does your location show up as when you go to a "my ip info" type web site? And does fiddling with your location info settings in Settings > Location & Security make any difference?
