Re: Doubt on get geo location get from network

I don't believe so, in fact I believe that I have had WiFi fixes when the device is only connected via WiFi.  Can you show us what criteria you are using.  You might also find it useful to look at the Event log on the device while you are attempting to get this fix to see if there are any messages.
