    I've been having this issue for a while now and it's getting real annoying. Hope it's something I'm just missing. It's telling me my current location is in Fort Bliss Texas and I'm in Long Beach CA. Any ideas?

    What happens if you turn wireless location off, i.e. set location to "device only"?

    My guess is that Google's map of cellular towers or wireless routers is wrong/out of date and your location is being messed up by that. If so then you'll get the right location if you go device only, though then some apps which only use wireless location won't be able to locate you.
