Weather location?

I just got my TB 2 days ago. I had to remove the battery to get to the SD card so I could transfer pics off my old phone to this one. After I put the battery back in, it changed my weather location to Mill Valley. I am in Buffalo, NY. I have tried adding my location under weather, but it says my city is not found. My location however is correct when I go under maps. How do I get my correct location back? The VZW Location Services and Google Location Services are checked to "on". I have also gone under Manage Applications and tried clearing the data for the HTC Weater Sync Provider...I saw in another forum that this worked for somone, but it hasn't helped me. I appreciate any help, thanks.

HTC is aware of intermittent issues with the weather application. Currently, there is no estimated time of repair. As a "work around" you can utilize the device's browser to view sites such as weather.com or similar sites. When a software update is available it will be pushed directly to your phone.

There's going to be a fix for that with the new update.

I downloaded Weatherbug (free) from the market and am also using Beautiful Widgets (paid) for the clock/weather widget (suppose to be more efficient that the stock HTC flip clocks).

I then can set it up so tapping the weather on the screen launches weatherbug instead of HTC's weather, tapping time on the screen launches the desk clock app and tapping the date launches the calendar. As a bonus my phone finds me in Rochester NY and not Northwest Comanche OK:smileyhappy:

I am always coming up with the wrong location.  I live in Idaho and every time I update, it has a new location for me.  Right now it is showing I am in Sierra Leone and yesterday, I was in France, Iceland, Switzerland.

 

Is it the phone, Verizon, quick GPS, or the weather software?  I am so frustrated I would like to change phone and carrier that get things right.  It has been going on for months not days.  It has been worse over the past few months.

Bobcat962, thanks for your inquiry. Does your GPS work when using Google Maps or other location based services on the phone? Which location services do you have turned on in Settings>Location & Security? Try turning on all 3 settings to see if this makes a difference. Also try clearing data from the Weather widget by going to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>All>Weather Widget>Clear data/Force stop. Let me know if that helps.
