UK iPhone Users Please read this about Localisation
Hello to All
This is the first time I have started a thread so be gentle
I am the glorious owner of an iPhone I bought in the US
I am still on 1.0.2 unlocked with AnySim...i think! ( it was a long time ago )
Anyway I have a problem with google maps and I was wondering if anyone can shed any light.
My maps.app works fine, however if i try to do a search for a UK address, it will drop a red pin and find it but the lable comes up as being unknown location.
Now if i want to make some directions it's difficult because when you touch the red pin and say directions to here or from here it goes back to the map with nothing filled. I take it, it happens because it doesnt recognise the location.
Now I went to an apple store in the Uk yesterday and tried to do the same thing with the UK stock iphone and it works fine.
I am trying to figure out how I can make my google maps work properly. I.E. if i put in a post code it will drop a pin saying thats "Example Road, Manchester" rather than dropping a pin saying "unknown location"
Does anyone know?
I am determined to get to the bottom of this and I figured this forum is the best place to get some help to crack this nut.
Also by the way does anyone have any edited files to localise the iPhone for the UK?
