Well we all have comcast internet, so why would mine show Miami, my sister's Baltimore, and my GF's southern IL?

Devices like the iPod Touch don't have a GPS transponder so it's pinning you down on a location based on your IP so what he's saying is if the IP of the wireless network your iPod Touch is picking up in northern Illinois is registered to an ISP in Miami, that's why it's showing Miami and so on.

Thanks for the insight. If the above is true, the maps portion is useless
|Quoting Klaus (Reply 8):|
The location is pinpointed through the wireless IDs of WiFi access points within range. It would even work if none of them had actual internet access (except the one that lets you load the maps) since you normally won't be able to log in to most of them. But your iPod Touch can "see" their wireless IDs even without having access to their respective networks.
