Weather no longer displaying in Dock


Nov 9, 2009

I've been using the Droid Dock for a few days and loving it. All of a sudden yesterday it stopped displaying the weather. It just shows "--F:" in the left hand corner. I've tried going through the weather setup over again several times and all the settings are there and correct. I've also tried rebooting...no luck.

Strange that it just stopped working. Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
This happened to me too. I ended up going into the actual weather page (click the icon) and clicking the link for 'current conditions'. For whatever reason this worked, my temp came back. I don't use gps, I have it set to my zip. Odd thing though, after this happened the sun/moon was backwards but has now fixed itself. It showed the sun at night and the moon during the day but it's fine now.

If you used the "allow GPS to determine location" and have turned off the GPS, then weather won't work.

If you've gone into the phone's main settings, and disabled the "Background sync", etc, then weather won't work.

GPS is turned on, as is Background sync.

Is anybody's working? I wonder if the site it's connecting to is having problems. Mine came back on this morning for about 10 minutes and it's out again.
