NOTE TO IPOD TOUCH USERS: Because iPods are not GPS enabled, "near me" searches will not work unless you are using WiFi. Also in some remote areas, your position still may not be found even with WiFi. Instead, you may search for restaurants near you by turning off "Use Current Location" and searching by zip code or city.
