How to edit device location, etc.

  • Question
  • Updated 1 year ago
My device location is a USFS mountain top, It has no address. I want to edit the Lat/Lon/Elevation. The website does a lot of work for us, except that when the assumptions are wrong they cannot be changed. There is a checkbox for the device location being the same as my address, and that cannot be changed. I did not check it. I was not asked to check it. The device summary page has an edit button, but not all of the data can be edited on the page. Are there other ways to edit the data?

I want to know the same too. If not, this needs to be added for coordinates rather address. Where I live and have some sensors, there's no postal address (in the woods of NW Montana).

Same here. I just saw a screenshot from a Greece MyAcurite dashboard that has coordinates for Alabama, USA. How to change? Apparently Acurite uses your address to determine the coordinates. You could easily find your actual coordinates by plugging values into Google Maps until the indicator matches your mountaintop location -but then you can't change them directly in MyAcurite. Not good. Mine is off a little, as well.

Good questions...mine is "off" by only 1' but I can see the problem for y'all.  They will probably add the ability to edit things like this in future updates.

Hello All,

At this time you cannot change your coordinates on My AcuRite.  We will certainly pass along the recommendation and keep it in mind for possible future updates.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.  Thank you and have a great day!

Hello hpadres,

This means that you are not able to select your country. You would need to select one of the supported countries on My AcuRite. This will throw off the forecasting as well because it will be based off the address information that is entered. Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.

I do not want to use the forecast, but I want it to at least show the correct time of day.
Is there a way to at ;east set my coordinates?

Wish my station read the correct geographic location for my address, which it does not, it shows that It's about 5 miles away from it's actual location. Can that be fixt?

I DO NOT WANT A SERVICE, I JUST WANT IT TO SHOW THE CORRECT LOCATION OF THE DEVICE.

Hello Yasser,

At this time there is no way to make those adjustments as you need to select one of the locations listed above, and it will be based off that time zone.  Thank you.
