    OK so I posted this on the Apple Support Forum but so far I've only got comedians answering.

    I have an iPod Touch 4th generation that I would like to add to my iPad (WiFi) and iPhone (3gs) on MobileMe so I can keep track of it, locate it, remote wipe it, etc if it's lost. It belongs to my daughter and she will sometimes misplace it.

    I had it set up and working for a little while (maybe a couple weeks). Afterwards, it just stopped updating it's location on me.com. I have tried deleting and recreating the mobile me account and I've done everything on the apple support site to troubleshoot. It's all configured with push and Location services on. I tried removing it from my mobile devices and now it won't even add itself back to the list. As a last resort, I've restored it and had no success.

    Both the iPhone and iPad work flawlessly. Has anybody else encountered this on their iPod touch and know of a way to solve it or an obscure setting I may be missing?

    iPod Touches and WiFi iPads do NOT have internal GPS chips. The only way a WiFi iPad or iPod will show up on the 'find' site is if you're attached to a wifi hot-spot who's address/coordinates are known to the 'find' web site - or, you use an external source for location data for the wifi iPad/iPod like a BadElf device, or bluetooth GPS puck of some kind.

    The above poster is correct. iPod touch and iPad wifi do not have GPS so you will not get a location when they are not connected to wifi.
