    Default Location Services frequently inaccurate on my phone
    (iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 8.1.3-8.2, never jailbroken)

    So for the last few weeks my phone has been thinking it's at a specific street about 20 minutes away from my house that I don't think I've ever actually been to before. I think it only happens when I'm at home, and about half the time that I'm home (the other half it knows I'm home). It even tells me how long it takes to drive home from there and gives me weather for that city. I looked in Frequent Locations in Settings and it recorded 40+ visits in a few weeks. I reset locations last week and it's back up to 18 visits. Has anyone else had/solved this issue?

    Edit: I got a new Wi-Fi router around the time this started happening and I'm starting to think that could have something to do with it because Wi-Fi is sometimes used for location.

    Your not jailbroken either right? Odd.
    So is this only happening at home when using Wi-fi?

    Or, when you are somewhere else, connected to other wifi or using LTE, or, you know, outside.....is than location accurate?

    I'm thinking about turning off Wi-Fi on my phone for a couple days. I read somewhere that if you move and take your router with you it will give you location for your old house for up to two months.

    That's not what I did but it might be a similar issue because I got a new router.

    I seem to be able to confirm my phone isn't logging any more visits to that location since I turned Wi-Fi off. I guess the problem should fix itself within two months of getting the router (the 20th of next month), so I'll post whether or not that happens.
