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 google.co.nz 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?

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.
