Google Map locations can show as wildly inaccurate if a internet data connection is not available for accurate GPS locating.

If relying on wifi connections, or if the phone is moved from one place to another rapidly without connecting (e.g. a long car journey or on a flight) the location can appear wildly out.--------------------Your satisfaction is my priority; I hope I have earned 5 stars today!Please take a moment to rate my service 5 stars and press Submit at the top of your question page; tips appreciated :)If my service is lacking and not worth 5 stars yet, please let me know before submitting your rating and I will do my best to assist you further.Pete.--------------------

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
