Location in the widget totally wrong quite often
When I am using Windy widget on Android device, quite often the location shown in the widget does not reflect my actual position. It's off by some 100-200-even 300 km sometimes.
I've tried a lot of other weather apps in search for this "perfect one for me" and no other app was showing such problem.
Something is definitely wrong with how Windy is determining my location.
@xfire Hi, thank you for reporting this, we know about those issues and working on fixing them.
Did you allow Windy to use GPS while using the app?
Of course I did. And today I've noticed that after I press the "Update widget" button in the widget settings, the location is corrected.
I don't know if it's possible for you - as a developer - to choose the location type, but I think it should be not just based on WiFi scanning (I suppose those errors are caused by selecting some kind of "rough" location type instead of precise one)
Have you tried to set your location as start-up location?
I’ve never got a problem with this setting.
@idefix37 Well, I'll definitely try out your proposed solution and report back in a few hours :-)
@idefix37 So I'm back. I took me a little bit longer than just few hours ;-) but anyway, I did what you proposed here and the problem seems to no longer appear.
At first I've chosen my home location as a "start up" location, but later on out of curiosity I switched to GPS and it seems to keep my location correctly.
So for now it's OK, especially when I wake up the phone - previously it was showing each time the same, wrong locaton. I was really angry then :-D
Thank you all for great support ang great application. I really appreciate your work ! :-)
@xfire Happy to hear this. :)
