Default femtocell, wireless extender, google latitude

Please Login to Remove!

i live in north new jersey, and thats what google latitude usually shows

but i just got a verizon wireless extender, and whenever i'm in range of it google latitude shows me in brooklyn ny, about 40 miles away

if i turn off the wireless extender, my location is correct. Turn it back on, i'm back to brooklyn

i thought that the extender didn't have any impact on data, or gps

by the way, it does a great job on providing an excellent voice signal

I have the extender as well and locates me properly.
