    Hey,
    When I use Beyond 411 and search for anything near my GPS location it always gives me things near Seattle WA, and Im in North Carolina. Any advice?

    I don't know if you already did this but when you go into 411 click on the Menu Button (it's the button with the dots)>Edit Settings> then you can change your address there and click save at the bottom. Hope this helps.

    yea I can enter my address and then have it search for things near my address, but isn't it supposed to locate you using GPS and search for things near your GPS location?

    Sorry cgreen, I was away from the computer for a while. The answer to your question is I believe so. The only other advice I could give is to reinstall Beyond 411 and see if that solves the problem-if you haven't already done this. Good luck

    Is GPS Enabled?

    You did not mention your service provider. Verizon disables GPS except for location reporting (e.g. when you call 911). If you check your settings you will probably find, as I did, that no GPS device is installed. I don't know a workaround.

    Google maps will give you an estimated triangulation based on cell towers. It is pretty accurate to an extent. I use it and really like it. If I am on a shoot in a different city (like today) I don't have to worry about it finding locations in Knoxville. You might try it instead.
