Question about the Near app

6 replies 12 views Edited Feb 16, 2012

I preordered the First Edition Bundle and picked it up today, and I found something odd with the Near app.  When I opened it and updated it, it said there was 17 people playing around me, but only 3 showed up on the radar.  Is that supposed to happen or am I missing something lol

Same thing for me, said there were 8 but only 2 on the radar.  Another weird thing is it says I am located at a location different than where I am at.  It keeps saying that I'm in a town 2 hours south of where I actually am.  Any idea why it would do that?  There doesn't seem to be any way to manually set your location data.

Hmm, thats odd.  That doesn't happen to me, maybe try opening the map app and seeing if that knows where you are? It might correct it?

I looked through the privacy settings and didn't see anything.  I thought maybe it was pulling the location info from my wifi so I disabled the wifi and just had the 3G on and ran Near and it didn't change anything.  I ran the google map app and it shows me as being in Columbus instead of Cleveland still. I'm stumped.
