Home screen weather shows wrong city

Does anyone know how to get the home page to display the weather for the correct city? I live in Rochester NY and it shows temp and conditions for Northwestern Comanche?  Verizon and Google location service are both active (checked). I can get it to show Rochester as city#2 but then I can't delete Northwest Comanche ( I believe that's in Oklahoma ) but it will allow me to delete where I am actually located (Rochester) Is there a way to get the gps to know it's not in Oklahoma?

Verizon tech service uninstalled the weather app, downloaded Weatherbug (free) from the market and I now have the weather for Rochester (temp in notification bar and other views when opened fron the notification. I'm happy (so far)

My Incredible does that all the time.  I was hoping the ThunderBolt wouldn't do the same thing.

Mine is doing this too, though its a little closer to where I actually am...in the same state least. Also, the weather is way off, its dark and cool outside and my phones telling me is 83 degrees out there. Pretty annoying.

Yeah, but does WeatherBug show up on the cool HTC Sense home page?

Mine was showing I was in India a few times, I live in Florida, no where near my neighborhood. I just installed Beautiful Widgets. I like how this App looks better anyway, and it is highly cutomizable. I bought this paid app back when I had my Moto Droid 1, and have used it on my INC my X and now my T-Bolt.

Today mine has been saying Sarajevo!  Usually it says New York - and I live in Colorado. 

 

I am not going to pay for an app.  I expect...this phone to work even as a "proof of concept".  If it can't get my location correctly for just the clock/weather widge, what else is it failing to geo-locate?

I'm wondering how they uninstalled this as I thought it was part of their Bloatware that couldn't be removed.  I'd love to be able to remove some other bloatware. : )
