Our ring-wielding Gizmodo brethren over in New Zealand took the iPhone's GPS out for a spin. And after the system properly located their position, the map zoomed in and put them somewhere unrecognizable. Upon zooming our, their new location was revealed: Kansas. And how they got there, no one knows.
The problem may have been a by-product of indoor testing, or it may have just been a random bug. Or, somewhat implausibly, the iPhone 3G's GPS is completely broken and entirely unfixable. Or maybe more likely Kansas is some default no man's land for GPS devices on first boot and this is a video taken before the iPhone here got its bearings. Time will tell. [Gizmodo AU]
