Wrong location in MyDrive

Good evening, and all that.

MyDrive asked permission to use my location - foolishly I agreed.

MyDrive seems to think my location is 88 miles away in Southport, when I actually live in West Bromwich.

Is there any way to correct this ? I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but it keeps going back to Southport.

    Welcome to the site....
    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
    Stay Safe... ATB YFM

    Thanks for that.

    I'm using Brave as a browser, but managed to work it out from your post.
