    I've reported locations that wont display weather when set to current location to both HTC and Accuweather.

    I wondered if creating a list may help speed up fixes.

    If we can keep the list Alphabetical, simply copy the previous list and add the locations that wont display weather.

    Have reported all those so far, and directed HTC to this thread explaining this affects all Android devices made by HTC.

    Keep adding locations.

    How can Fancy Widget manage to get current location to work in all these areas when the HTC application cannot? And Fancy Widget is having to be withdrawn because HTC have complained about it!
    I would be happy to use the HTC version but please make it work properly.

    I find Snowstorm (app) works well - it even allows you to specify a fall-back location in case current location fails.

    The data is there when you "hard code" the location but will not work through current location. This is my home area but current location seems to work fine everywhere else I go.

    I bought the Beautiful Widgets app from the market and it works fine in Bromley using current location but the stock HTC weather app does not.

    pretty much most of sheffield shows up as Norton. Google earth did it in some earlier versions but has now been fixed. odd that this still happens on the phones.

    Just had this reply from Accuweather:
    So, if your location is missing, then contact HTC. Or perhaps this is why locations now show as UK instead of a town name?

    To add to your list. Thought martlesham and Kesgrave were working they no longer do on mine. I've reset it, removed sim etc etc. Still all itr shows is Current Location.

    So ;

    Debenham, Suffolk UK
    Kesgrave, Suffolk UK
    Martlesham, Suffolk UK

    Anyone been able to get hold of HTC to get to the bottom of this or are HTC not going to be supporting their own phones properly in large international markets?? I swapped out from Samsungs for this and was at first fairly impressed, as times gone on its got worse though...

    Hello HTC please wake up and acknowledge you have a massive market here in the UK and Europe that needsproper support

    Kettering, Northamptonshire :(

    Thing that annoys me is it picks up tiny little villages in Warwickshire that i visit at work. Snowstorm works fine though so what are they doing right HTC aren't?
