  1. Cortana gives wrong location


    After installing the October 2020 feature update, Cortana started misbehaving.

    I live in Ottawa, but if I ask for the weather report or a store it puts me in Toronto.

    I have set the default location correctly, and have given permission to every app to use my location.

    Bing gets my location correct. And I thought Cortana uses the location that Bing has.

    So how do you explain that Cortana keeps giving me Toronto instead of Ottawa?

    :)

  2. Cortana gives the wrong location when asking for the weather.

    When I ask cortana to give me the weather she gives me the wrong location when the weather app is set to my location. I wonder if this a bug or something that can be fixed?

    Cortana gives me wrong current location

    Hi all,

    I ask Cortana "What is my current location?", and Cortana gives me a different street in our neighborhood. I ask Siri "What is my current location?" and Siri gives me the correct location.

    Thank you,
