    Previously, on my Lumia 800 wp7 when at home indoors, location services would immediately have an accurate fix for me. I'm assuming this is due to location services using wifi to locate.
    On my Lumia 925 (And my wife's) I notice that it seems to default back to the cell tower location initially, putting me several miles away, and will take a while to get a more accurate fix, almost to the point where I don't think it's using wifi to locate at all. The most annoying part is that I quote enjoy seeing my geotagged photos on a map, but they're all showing up in the wrong places!

    Anyone found similar? I wondered if it was maybe my phone at first, but then my wife went and got one as well and it seems to behave exactly the same.

    Cheers,
    Alan

    The 925 should use WiFi to get location indoors, based on the information on Nokia's site. Nokia Lumia 925 - User Guide - Nokia Lumia 925 - Positioning methods - Nokia - USA

    That's what I thought, is anyone able to test their wp8 phone?
    All I've been doing is opening maps when indoors, it seems to forget completely where it last was, defaults to cell location, tries GPS, then maybe goes wifi, but it might just be that it picks up GPS eventually.
