  • The surface tablet does not have a GPS. The only way it can determine locations is by looking at the SSID of the WiFi access point you are attached to and seeing if it has a location registered for that access point. Not every access point has been registered, so it's not at all uncommon that the position is unknown. In the bing maps app, you can set your position manually.
