    Worked for me in downtown Baltimore.

    I wonder why they require a login. What sort of information are they tallying in exchange for this "free" servcie? Just speculating. I think it's great.

    They submit the tower info to build out their location database.

    It worked for me with WiFi on showing where the IP address of the router was located at. You can do this on a PC using trace if you want.

    I turned Wi-Fi off and got the same errors everyone else gets.

    Word of warning: Don't miss enter the password or it'll crash.....no big deal, just letting you know.
