Lightbulb GPS Issues for Beyond411 Diagnosed

Please Login to Remove!

Many users have noted difficulties with GPS in Beyond411.

Iíve investigated and discovered that the web service I am using for reverse geocoding seems to be incorrectly returning empty results in many cases.

I have notified the providers of the web service; I will post a status update as available. I believe it should be possible to fix this on the server with no client changes.

Great news - It would be nice to keep it on GPS most of the time. Currently I tend to type in the city and state on all searches.
