    Since the day 1 my 128Gb Surfacve pro shows wrong location in maps and other location based apps. It zeros in on a location that's approximately 10 miles away. All my other devices, when they connect to wifi pull correct location info. Any help with this will be appreciated. Surface Pro is true future.

    That's weird. There's a free app in the Marketplace called "Maps App" that uses the google API instead of bing; try that one and maybe it'll give you a different result?

    I have to be brutally honest, but that application is.... forgettable.

    I am using G Maps on all my Windows 8 devices, much better.

    To the OP, to determine if it is your device, and not the map application, go to here.com using yor browser. Check your location.

    This is *exactly* where I am while posting this.

    That site is very accurate on my RT it's only off by about 8-10 feet.

    It's by Nokia ;) The leader in mapping, as far as I am concerned. :D
