    My Lumia 920 now thinks I am in a river in Maryland. I tried to turn the phone on and off and it didn't solve the error. Anyone has an idea what is happening? I am already on my 4th Lumia 920, and I guess ATT will not be happy....

    It's not the device. It's an AT&T bug. It's happened previously.

    GPS says in Akron OH until reboot?

    GPS says I am in Alpharetto

    May be the problem with A-GPS... Go outside your house and do a "soft reset" while being outside, see if it helps.

    Hmm... Try this: close all map programs you have, turn on Airplane mode (also, you might try removing SIM card) and then try your map programs again, while not being connected to cell or WiFi network... Try different map programs, like gMaps and such, to make sure it's not an app issue. If that won't help - try a "hard reset" which resets the phone to factory settings, if even that won't help - then it's time for another replacement ☹

    Sounds more like an AT&T network problem. GPS says I am in Alpharetto

    That's why he should try it without being connected to ATT's network, so the phone will try to use the regular GPS without using location data from ATT's network 😉

    Thanks for all the helps. I've found out it's an ATT issue. Thanks. I will wait a few days and see if ATT sort itself out

    Son of a ^%$

    Phone shows I am in Glen Echo again... I am getting tired of this.

    Nokia Drive
    Bing Local
    Amazing Weather

    Everything is wrong. Thankfully I don't have to use Nokia Drive today.

    Heh, yeah me too. Just got my Lumia 920 today and it thinks I'm in Glen Echo, MD. In the middle of that very same river :D

    I wonder whether people in Glen Echo will even realize there's anything wrong!
