My location in MyDrive web tomtom

Why is my location shown incorrectly on the My Drive map? It's about a 1/4 mile as the crow flies from where it should be.

    switch off the location tracking in your browser.
    Mostly the point of entry of the internet provider is shown by the IP address as current location

    Hi
    @ib12

    Its the Geo Web Location 'You are here' Icon
    I turned mine off ages ago when the MyDrive Web Route planner decided that I lived in a different town 30 + Miles away
    According to Google Street view my Geo Web Location is a tiny brick building at the end of a Cul-de-sac on an industrial estate... its where my Internet Provider connects to the Internet

    The first time you used the MyDrive Web Route planner a small window opened to ask you if you wanted to use your present location as your default location... This is called Geo-Location I guess you answered yes

    Geo-Location Settings
    Which Web Browser are you using for the MDW Route planner....

    Microsoft (Edge) Windows....Click on the Windows Start button --> Setting --> Privacy --> Location
