When you connect your Apple iPod Touch to a Wi-Fi network, the device can determine your GPS coordinates using the network connection. You can then run apps that use location services, such as Maps, Google Earth and Foursquare. In order to make a GPS connection on your iPod Touch, you must enable location services for the app that you want to grant access to your GPS coordinates.
Make sure your iPod Touch is connected to a working Wi-Fi network.
Tap on the "Settings" icon from the iPod's home screen.
Tap on the "Location Services" menu.
Scroll through the list of apps to find the one that you want to grant access to your GPS coordinates.
Move the slider bar next to the desired app from the "Off" position to the "On" position. The selected app now has access to your iPod's GPS location information.
- The GPS connection is functional only while your iPod Touch is connected to a Wi-Fi network.
