I have registered my home wifi with Skyhook which does the Wifi location data for the the GPS-A.

Unfortunately I haven't notice any others that have (not that I have looked for it). It would be good it they mapped out the main cities in NZ at least .

How did you register? I looked around their site a couple of years ago and again just now and can't find any way to register. Last time I found coverage maps but can't even find them now!

Edit: Typical. I just need to post on GZ and then BAM! the link jumps right out at me.

It takes a few days for it to be active but once done, you phone knows when you are at home so great having GPS data in photos. Before then it was locating all my photos as taken on the other side of the waitamata harbor (where the cell site I use must be located)
