Changing Location

Know how to alter location and set new default location but not sure how to ensure map opens at correct location. Today I was viewing adsbexchange on VRS. I live in UK but map opened at Los Angeles Airport. I know how to move map to my location but of course every time I move map it wants to log all the available aircraft.

When VRS opened I got the requests to access my location etc (laptop so no GPS) but of course still opened me 6000 miles West of my correct location :)

Am I missing something obvious re map locations?

If the browser can't supply a location for the mobile page then I think it falls back to the usual desktop mechanism for setting your location. I've added instructions on how to set the location to the FAQ:

Scroll down to The Map, Aircraft List and Aircraft Detail.

The current location is stored in your browser's local storage. If you are using your browser's private browsing mode then it won't let the site save anything to local storage.
