"What is the address of my current location?"
Here are some questions and answers around PinPoint on the iPhone you might find useful:
Why is it asking for my name?
This is so it can personalize your email text. It will use your name and make the email read like this: "John is currently near..." (replace John with your name).
You will only asked for your name the first time you press the "Share" button. From then on it will use your name each time you share your current address via email.
How can I change my name?
Click the information button (tiny "i") on the button bar. The info screen displays a button with the label "Edit your name".
Why is the address not correct?
This could be because you try to use in a location where the iPhone GPS cannot get a signal. Usually this is happening in a building (e.g your office or home) or when you in a narrow street. To get the most accurate result you need to ensure that you are outdoors with clear view to the sky. Even without GPS signal we try to get an address. However, this address might not be very accurate or might only contain the suburb without street.
What does the message mean: "(weak signal)"?
It means your iPhone is not getting a GPS signal. Your phone will still be able to find your location based on "cell tower triangulation". However, this will return only vague address information. Usually this will return only the suburb you are in. A message will indicated that the result has only "low accuracy". This happens if you are indoors or in narrow streets.
What does the message mean: "(some signal)"?
It means your iPhone is not getting a GPS signal. Your phone will still be able to find your location based on "Wifi triangulation". The address that will appear is most likely not accurate. After PinPoint has finished locating you it will show you a message telling you that this result has only "medium accuracy". This happens if you are indoors or in narrow streets.
What does the message mean: "(good signal)"?
Your iPhone's GPS is working fine and you can expect an accurate address result.
This is what you can expect when you are outdoors with clear view to the sky.
