Rain Parrot does not fix on my location
I live at Little Bay (on the coast south of Maroubra) but Rain Parrot shows me the weather for Sydney Airport. Although the airport is a relatively short distance from Little Bay (around 10km) the temperature is quite different- coastal versus cement runways. I don’t have a problem with GPS recognition for other weather and GPS dependent apps, only with Rain Parrot.
We are looking into some advanced ways we can merge our current ‘actual’ data with the predicted models, that other apps use, to provide a higher accuracy solution.
There are loads of apps that ‘fake it’ by using these models, we prefer to give the real data where possible, however we understand that this doesn’t work for everyone, particularly if you are not near a weather station.

I just paid $5.99 and it won’t do my location, a waste of money. I need a Refund, now. 😡
I live in Hemmant, Brisbane. The app reports my location as Brisbane Airport (~10km away). Similar issue to the OP. Hope this helps.
BTW, fantastic app.
