    My HTC sensation arrived yesterday, however after the 2.3.4 update I seem to have some weird issue.
    While the gps is super precise in finding my location the meteo (which if i got that right works using the the wifi) seems to find a whole different area. The plan was to overcome the issue by setting my own location on the widget which unfortunatly is not present in the device archive (Alessandria Italy).
    Is there a chance to add it ?

    Eloh666, check you sync setting for the weather app.

    go to settings>accounts&sync, if you click the weather at the bottom, check mark sync weather, and tell how often, i had this problem ( 2.3.3 ) and this sorted it.

    Currently it is set to 3 hours, should I try to change it?

    The location updates correctly if I decide to use only the GPS to determine my location, it works perfectly with the meteo application but the widget (the clock one) does NOT work with wireless location deactivated.
    It would just be a lot easier I could add my own city to the database using weather codes, isnt there a way to do so?

    i dont know about actual weather codes.....i have just been looking through the sensation manual.

    it says for the weather app to automatically update... well here is what it says, you could try turning all you location settings on if they are not already

    For HTC Sensation to detect your current location and display your local weather in
    the Weather app and widget as well as in Clock and Calendar:

    As long as weather is set to sync and you at least have use wireless networks for location enabled it should work ok.

    I personally dont have use gps for location enabled and the only time I had any problems was when I turned off weather sync. Setting it to update every 3 hours is also fine, and will not drain battery much.
