Live in Florida 1 1/2 years. Lived in PA before that. The map on the IPOD TOUCH will not recognize Florida. It maps exactly where I lived in PA. Just purchased the unit a 3 weeks ago. Apple says it a wireless router problem, they say it's an apple problem.
Re: Live in Florida 1 1/2 years. Lived in PA before
The iPod Touch does not have a GPS unit. It relies upon the names of known wireless access points in the area. They use a 3rd party (company) to keep this database. They may have mapped your wireless in the home to your old address. This, unfortunately, is the best it'll get until they put a GPS in it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

1. Reset or restore your iPod for a try, this can fix many general iPod problems.
2. You may try this iTunes alternative, I always use it to upload music and video to my iPod once my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, my friends recommend it to me, it's safe and works pretty well, you can also use it to copy music and video from ipod to computer for backup, it's useful when you lost your iTunes library.
3. Update your iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod. If iTunes can't recognize it, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod. I got this method from Apple technical support. Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.
<p>If you want to use Disk Management to partition and format
the iPod Touch, you must enable disk use on your iPod. By default, Apple iPod
products configured to work with Apple's iTunes and not as portable drives on
your computer. You can use iTunes on your hard drive mode to allow your iPod,
allowing the computer to deal with and recognize the iPod as a portable unit. <br />
<p>1. Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable
for iPod. <br />
<p>2. Launch iTunes. Select your iPod from the
"Devices" from the iTunes browser. <br />
<p>3. Click on the "Summary" tab in the main iTunes
window to change the settings for your iPod. <br />
<p>4. Go to the bottom of the Settings window and check the
"Enable Disk Use". The computer recognizes the iPod Touch as a
portable disk. <br />
<p>5. Quit iTunes. Run the Disk Management and check the disk
devices connected to ensure that your iPod is displayed as a portable unit. <br />
1. Hold down Sleep/Wake button and Home button together, until the iPod touch powers off. Once the iPod touch turns on again, let go of the Sleep/Wake button about 1 or 2 seconds later, still holding the Home button. Once plugged in to your computer, iTunes will recognize the device is in Recovery Mode. You can now restore which will set the iPod touch back to factory defaults, thus removing the passcode.
2. Open up iLiberty+ and other the Other Tools tab select Enter DFU Mode. Your iPod touch will be recognized as in Recovery Mode by iTunes once you plug it in, at which point you can restore through iTunes. This will wipe the passcode as you're setting the device back to factory defaults.
3. Open up ZiPhone and select Prepare for Upgrade. You're iPod touch needs to be plugged in to your computer before doing so, and once you select that option iTunes will recognize that your device is in recovery mode. You can now restore through iTunes which sets the device back to factory default thus removing the passcode.
To activate your iPod touch, follow these steps:
1. Download iTunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes.
2. Install iTunes.
3. Open iTunes, and connect your iPod touch to the computer using the included Dock Connector to USB cable.
4. iTunes will recognize the iPod and walk you through setting it up.
Hope this helps.
1. First, Open up iTunes, plug in your iPod Touch/iPhone to the CPU's USB port. Turn on your CPU's speaker and make sure it is loud enough that you can hear it.
2. Hold down the Home button (top left for iPod Touch and top right for the iPhone with the screen facing you) and the Power button (located on the front bottom of your iPod Touch/iPhone) simutaneously, until the screen goes black and the device turns off. (past the red slider/slide to power off screen)
3. Now let go of the Power button, but continue to hold the Home button. Your iPod Touch/iPhone should have turned off and the screen should not be on.
4. After around ~10-20 seconds, you will hear a noise (beep/ding) from your CPU as if it had just recognized a new hardware device, now iTunes should recognize it in DFU mode.
5. After iTunes recognizes the iPod Touch/iPhone, let go of the Home button otherwise it will go into recovery mode and you will have to do the entire DFU process over again.
6. You will know when you have put your iPod Touch/iPhone correctly into DFU mode when the display is blank and that you do not have anything on your device. 7. Restore ipod using itunes
Step 1: Check to see if your iPod can still be charged by charging it using a wall charger and wait for it to fully recharge.
Step 2: If it does charge fully, try using your iPod normally and see how long it lasts. If it lasts for only 2 hours, your iPod battery may be dying. If it doesn't charge at all your iPod may be dead.
Step 3: If either of the cases are true then you have two options:
If your iPod is less than a year old, you can bring in your iPod to the Apple Store and have it replaced for free on the spot as part of its 1 year warranty.
If it is older than 1 year, you can go to the Apple Store and have them replace the battery for a fee
If you are looking for a new iPod anyway, go to the Apple Store with your old iPod, and tell them you are looking for a new iPod. They will give you a 10% discount when you hand your old one in.
Your ipod can go into paper weight or brick mode after dropping it or exposing it to moisture ie. water. Look down the headphone jack with a flash light and see if the little rectangular water sensor is white or pink. White means that your good and pink means the water sensor has been triggered and the unit has been exposed to excessive moisture. Here's the kicker- Apple's 1 year warranty does not cover water damage so your fu.kd. But if your still within your year warranty or you got an extended warranty, then just take the thing back to the Apple store and exchange it out if the water sensor is not pink.
Aaah, very simple procedure. First, plug your new iPod into your computer. Second, open up iTunes. Third, your computer should recognize your new iPod and will prompt you to go through a simple iPod set up, then it will ask you if you want to sync your music library to it.
Hope this helps!
The iPod touch is disabled when the incorrect unlock code is entered too many times. The time the iPod makes you wait increases each time an incorrect unlock code is entered.
There are two ways you should be able to unlock the iPod. First, connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with. After iTunes recognizes the iPod, you should be able to enter your unlock code and unlock the iPod.
If the first method doesn't work or you don't remember your unlock code, then do this: 1) Turn the iPod off. 2) Hold down the Home button and connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with. 3)Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears of the iPod's screen. 4)Wait for iTunes to recognize the iPod and then follow the onscreen directions to restore the iPod.
If neither method works, you will need to contact Apple Customer Support.
