    You may be stuck in an intercosmic wormhole. Try going outside.

    No, seriously though. I've had this happen to me too. If you dont have a satellite signal (indoors, heavy tree canopy) and the "triangulation" software recognizes a wifi hotspot that has been incorrectly logged, it can show up as an incorrect placement in gMaps.

    Say a coffee shop next door is running a wifi network with an SSID of "Finebeans". If finebeans is registered on the trangulation database as being in france, and your iphone has no other info to triangulate off of, it'll put you in France.
