Guess what? The Gears Geolocation API got even better! We have just released a new version of Gears, 0.4.24.0, which contains an enhanced implementation of the Geolocation API. This new version uses WiFi access point signals to return significantly more accurate results, making it a lot more useful on laptop computers.
You can find more details about this release on the UK Google Code Blog.
