Both the iPod & the iPad Wi-Fi only versions do not have an actual GPS chip in them, they rely on other methods to determine your location. You will need an external GPS device for Waze to work properly.

GPS Connectivity/Setting

Postby RiskeyBlue » Mon Sep 10, 2012 3:17 am

"No GPS connection. Make sure you are outdoors. currently showing approximate location". This message almost always appear whenever I press "map issue". That is why whenever I use waze on the move, my mobile position is never updated realtime. I am using both Ipod and Ipad running on mobile wifi transmitter (city: Jakarta_Indonesia). Consequently, I could never navigate myself, let alone collect points along the way because my pin just 'jumps' from one location to another whenever it seems to find GPS. I also dare not report anything because i am unsure waze will report my exact correct location. Is there settings problem or is this issue typical for Indonesia?
