I live in Antwerp, the city center, but when I open Google Maps it never shows Antwerp.
0
For eight months Google Maps always opened on 'Soignies', a village about 100km away from me. Now it shows 'Lummen', also 100km away from me. I live in Antwerp, I connect from Antwerp, I am always logged in with my Google account and set my 'Home' location to my street in Antwerp. Google Maps ignores all this.
Any time I ask for directions it starts from Soignies (now Lummen), never from Antwerp, never from my Home location. The problem exists both in Chrome and in Firefox, also after wiping all cookies and cache.
The same happens with Google Maps that are embedded in a website, they default to Lummen instead of to Antwerp.
When I visit friends with this laptop, then Google Maps is always correct, so it may have something to do with me being a customer of EDPNET (instead of Telenet or Proximus).
I would very much like to tell Google Maps to always open the map in Antwerp, since I am here 99% of the time. The 'location' info (ip-address) on which Google Maps bases my current location is wrong, how can I tell it to ignore this faulty info, and tell it to just open Maps at my Home location?
