I have latitude app at my wei mobil phone. Today at my historical it seems that I have gone from Santos, SP to Peru in some minutes. But I'm not Superman. How is it possible.

Maps and Latitude can use wifi networks that your phone or laptop can see nearby to determine your location. Sometimes there are duplicate hardware addresses (mac addresses) of these wifi routers, so if a router in Peru has the same hardware address as a router in Brazil then Latitude can confuse them and think you're seeing the other wifi router.

A mac adress shouldn't be unique oO ?

They should be unique, but it reality they aren't. They can also be manually assigned (spoofed).
