Change Location

I love the idea of rain parrot for slipping my bicycle commute in between the showers. To make this even better it would be good to be able to change the location so that I can see predictions on when it will rain along the route. For example the rain here usually comes from the W and my commute home from work is E to W. If I could set the location to my home and see that it isn’t expected to rain there for 40 mins then I know that I could get home dry. Leaving the location at the office may say clear for the next hour but it may start raining on me before I get home.

    We are looking into adding additional locations on a separate page. Note we have tried this feature and it isn’t as useful as it sounds, as the rain often travels faster than you can. So by the time you arrive at your new location the rain prediction is completely different to when you left as so much time has passed.

        Being able to set manual locations would be useful, currently the app thinks I’m at Garden island which is the navel base 23kms away offshore, the island weather is completely different to onshore conditions in Baldivis 😒

        This feature would be extremely useful to plan for travel to different places.

        Doesn’t seem to get my location. Random VIC locations. Not great.

        Waste of bloody money !!! Failed to load every time!! Didn’t realize that it only works in Australia as well !!

        Just installed this app today and it doesn’t have my location correct.
        Being able to have the correct location is imperative to the app being useful and working as intended.

        How can I change my location?

        I want this as iv paid almost $3 for the app and it has me located in a suburb that’s 30km away from me. Reallly pissed off. It’s great to have all the bells and wistles but it has to WORK.

        Would be great to adjust location as currently it forecasts for a town 22km away and is always slightly off. As I am hinterland, in a topographical area, it can be a big difference in the 20km.
        Cheers

        Would love to use this app to know the weather at my travel destination. So it will be great to change the current location.

        Let’s say if I want to go to the beach I am more interested in the weather at the beach than my current location.

        We have had thunder, lightening and torrential rain here at Mornington since 9-10 am it's now 1.11pm, can't hear anything for the rain.
        My Rain Parrot has told me all morning "no rain approaching"

        There would be a map that users can drop a pin on to save a location as well as having the option of viewing the users current location.
