Can you advise why my position indicator on my PC is always incorrect?

If i open the app on my phone, it indicates the correct location, but not on my PC, ever.

    Hi
    @Kevin Reichert
    Welcome to the site....
    Its the MyDrive Web Route planner... 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 small brick building at the end of a Cul-de-sac on an industrial estate....
    It's 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

    Hi YFM. OK, so I found the location setting in Chrome. That's the default browser I use. Do I need to block the location as it too places me all over the place - nowhere close to my actual location...

    Hi
    @Kevin Reichert
    I would say 'Yes' I found the Geo Location to be a pain when I was using the MDW Route planner....
