Get your external IP addredd from here: What Is My IP Address? Lookup IP, Hide IP, Change IP, Trace IP and more...
then use that address here: IP Address Lookup
And see where it thinks you are
Thanks for the advice. I just ran them, and both get my location right. But I set my default a few days ago (as A Guy recommended upthread)... before that it was blank.
Perhaps the Montana thing was just a temporary glitch in my ISP. I don't think it was a default in the new Map App, as Speed Test also thought I lived in a park two thousand miles away.
I'll be reinstalling Eight many more times in the next few months. I'll see what happens after the next one.
