It is working for me. It is no really true GPS as the iPhone does not have a gps antenna. But it is using the IP address of my wi-fi and work to determine my location.

When on edge I bet is users cell tower triangulation.

Very Cool!

Is that where it should be telling you that you are? Or is it telling you that you are somewhere not even related to your position?
Where I am (I have some meetings later today I'll see if it updates) I click on the Navizon icon - it launches google maps (iPhone app) and there is a pin right where I am. type in "pizza" shows all the pizza from where I am....

All it did was put a big red dot on my screen with the text "YOU ARE HERE"...

Well I already know that... Is that all it does?

Uhmm that pretty incredible if you think about it (and how GPS works)... if you are traveling you don't need to know your current location (zip, address, town, etc...) to find directions, food, etc...
