For some reason, my browser always defaults to New Zealand. I've reset my location in the Store and in the settings, but it always pulls up when doing a search and the default map centers on New Zealand when I turn off my location.

Anyone know how I can set the region of the browser to match where I am?

Does this happen over 3G or WiFi or both? If it's only WiFi, is it possible that your network is configured to use a proxy? – Nathan Greenstein Dec 31 '11 at 15:39
It's WiFi. My iPad is WiFi only. And i'm not using a proxy. – OghmaOsiris Dec 31 '11 at 18:02

I finally figured it out.

In Settings>General>International for some reason New Zealand was selected instead of United States. I had to close out safari, clear browsing data and then re-search something from the iPad search bar and it finally worked.
