    What am I doing wrong? I'm currently in my house in Gorseinon, Swansea and it thinks I'm in Penderry which is about 5 miles away. The phone has never been up there. It was fine yesterday. Any ideas? I'm using Wifi in the house and my GPS is on.

    Not even driven past it?

    Could also be signal issue with the GPS. GPS doesnt always work well indoors ;)

    If you get a location, but no weather is shown, then this is normal for some locations when using "current location" to show weather.

    The town I'm in doesnt show any weather, yet the village nearby does. So I set mine to the Northampton instead, and dispensed with current location.

    Weather location is from cell tower location. Ie your phone must be connecting to a tower towards Penderry.

    The tower location can also be skewed by where it connects to the BT network.
