    Before I upgraded to JellyBean from Gingerbread and whenever I hit on the world globe for Google Internet search I used to see my postcode on it's location, but now all I see is United Kingdom, and when I hit on Update Precise Location nothing happens.

    I have tried all the settings that I can see to allow this and also what may help this issue like clearing cookies but nothing seems to fix this issue, any ideas?

    However when I click on bars and restaurants etc they do indeed find my local area, and my maps finds me too.

    So...I don't get it. What exactly is your problem? It's finding local venues and still finding you as in the UK so why so bothered? It could just be the way it's displayed has changed.

    I just wondered why the change, still finds local stuff so no big deal, I just wondered why it doesn't find the local location on the main Google page like it did previously, just says United Kingdom.

    Do you use Jellybean may I ask?
