@erpreciso Hello, we are aware that some users experience issues with location determination and we are working on fixing it.
For now, I would suggest to try reinstalling the app, checking that you have allowed Windy to use your location and selecting option "determine by GPS" in the app's settings.
@erpreciso said in Wrong Location:
I understand @Sjælland problem is more about saving settings in the cloud and across devices,
My post about saving settings was addressed to you too just because you were referring to @Sjælland post.
There is apparently a problem with user location, OK. But You can save Perpignan as favorite. Of course it is one click more to display the local weather.
First of all I'm sorry if I hijacked a thread but the header covered partialy my problem and so, instead of opening another thread containing also "wrong location", perhaps due to other reasons, I used this one ;-) Perhaps it was the "wrong location" :-)))
Yes I'm using the latest Firefox 93.0.
I do now understand that the layers preferences, despite what is written completely at the bottom of the folded-open layers-menu, are not saved in the Cloud but in the browsers cache.
I think that's were the problem lays as my Firefox settings are such that Firefox deletes cookies, site-data and caches upon Firefox closure.
Whether this also influences the location-settings, I don't know. Even with the latest Firefox the location setting goes back to the IP location instead of the selected preferred town.
It has to be noted however that this problem of not saving the location exist (only?) on my Macbook (Sierra 10.12.6, Firefox 93.0) but not on my iPhone App. I guess closing the App on an iPhone does not wipe out caches.
If deemed required we can continue this discussion in another thread; please advice ......
@sjælland Hello, the selected layers are only saved to the local storage of a browser on your computer. If you have a settings that deletes all the site data, that is likely the reason you have issues.
Layers are not saved to the cloud, we will remove this text.

Seeing this as well, but only in Android widgets. Opening the app or refreshing the widgets manually will correct the location error. I live in south metro Atlanta, but it will routinely claim that I'm in Sandy Springs, GA or, as of today, Central Florida.

@korina Hello, since I moved to Spain two weeks ago, my location is now accurately reported. I already moved some hundreds kilometers along the Pyreneus mountains, and the app correctly gives me the weather of where I am, both at startup and with "Find my location". I also can see the blue pulsing dot, in the map, corresponding to my location, regardless how I move the map. Thanks for the great app and for the very responsive support forum!
@erpreciso Happy to hear this! :)

@Bob-Lublawe @idefix37 @rhc098 @Sjælland Hi, we have just released a new update that contains a fix for the location bug. Please update Windy and let us know if the problem persists.
I had no problem with my location because I had not used GPS positioning until then.
I will use this positioning mean to test the new update.
@idefix37 Thank you, let us know if you observe any issue.
