Nothing scary about it, really. What do you think the Maps app is for? Also
the compass. You've probably got Location turned on in at least one app,
anyway.

Hello,
Well, she doesn't know who I am, but she even found my address. LOL, kind of
scary, really.

Well, it sounds like you don't have your info put into Siri . So why not
try
asking for a specific weather at a specific location. For example: What is
the weather in Tallahassee, Florida and see what she says.
If she answers then I would ask her who I am and see what she say's and
if
she don't know she will say something like you can put your info in so and
so. And then go and put your info in for her. But I think your info is set
in Siri such as your name and address and so on.

Hello Bill,
I'm not sure about that one myself, either, as when I ask about the
weather,
she says no weather information available. So if someone does know why,
I'd
be interested, too.

Hi rajmun,
Well, I finally got around to reading your post and it was the most
helpful of all, as you included that extra little bit that I really
needed.

Ok, i now have that all set up, but this time when I asked about
weather it said no weather available. I'm pretty sure that the weather
is on, but not absolutely, any reason why it should tell me that, and
is there anything else i need to change?
many thanks,
Bill K.

Hello,
I might do that, but I don't like keeping contacts on a device, that, in a way, is not mine. It works for what I need it now, so all's well.

Well, I would go to settings and general and Siri and then my info I think
it is called and put in my info for her/him. Then back out of settings and
close all apps out of the foreground and in the app switcher and then reboot
the phone or device and then see what happens. I think this will solve your
problem . That is also if you have location turn on in settings and have
location turn on in any app you want it to know your location . HTH

Hi,

Have you double-tapped the "Edit Cities" button, and then typed in your city
or nearest town? That tells the Weather app the locN you're interested in
knowing about. (You'll find this button towards the bottom of the page or
screen.) Then you can input more cities if you're interested.
