     29If it doesn't get a good result (e.g. displays where you used to live or work rather then your current location) then you can improve the accuracy by updating the databases of !WiFi signals mapped to locations. If you move and take your wireless router with you, these services may not have the up-to-date information and will still associate your !WiFi signal with your old address. If you are experiencing this problem and need to update your location, please update both the [https://services.google.com/fb/forms/wifibugs/ Google] & [http://www.skyhookwireless.com/howitworks/submit_ap.php Skyhook Wireless] databases.
