Showed me a map of CA.
I'm in MD.

In the absence of personal location data of the visitor, perhaps they show the state where the "Googleplex" is located.

If you do have it turned on and want to turn off location history, click the gear on the linked page and "History Settings". You can disable it from that page.

No info for me either.

Location sharing is not turned on.

To see what, and disable any information you don't want google to have. Unlike the other guys they give you control over most of it

That just invites me to create a Google account! Why would I want to do that? I use Google Sharing Extension on Fx so my searches can't be tracked.

Looks as though you have to have a Google account (which I will never do).

Possibly because Google no longer supports IE6?

But you must have used it once, because without Google cookies, you can't get to the location data page; not even to get the "No Data" message.

You seems to forgot to mention, that cookies could have different flavors. They could be chocolate and vanilla, permanent and session only... You don't have to have permanent cookies to get "No Data" message, that I quoted earlier.

"Location sharing is not turned on"

It showed me the map of the US...the whole map, and I cannot be found anywhere. Does that mean I am lost again!
