Trivia: It's not an accident that Wisconsin was chosen as the new South Pole in the movie, its position being 44N/90W, 44 being a number that Roland Emmerich tries to sneak into every movie he makes since his 'Moon 44' days.

Trivia: The frequency for the radio station 745 is not an error. It's like having a phone number start with '555' to prevent people from dialing or harassing the person who owns the number. Same with the radio station. They don't use real ones for good reason.

Trivia: It isn't adequately discussed, but if the new South Pole is in the middle of Wisconsin (44N/90W), then the new North Pole is in the neighborhood of St.Paul island(44S/90E), in the southern Indian Ocean. One can only assume they are referring to the magnetic poles, not the axis that the earth rotates around, otherwise Africa would be as hospitable as northern Canada.

Mistakes

In the poster shot and in the film, the wave from the Atlantic carrying the carrier JFK into a collision with the White House comes crashing in from the west because the south portico of the White House is seen. The Atlantic Ocean is east of Washington, so the wave should come from the other direction. And even a wave coming from the east could not have made the JFK (CV-67) crash into the White House because the carrier has been retired in 2005 and is berthed in Philadelphia, which is northeast of Washington DC.
