Geo-location not working
« on: April 03, 2020, 10:42:39 PM »
Avast advertises that the Omni supports geo-location which can be used to track the location of a device running Avast Omni software.  When I try to add a location, Omni Family Guardian allows me to add a name, but can not find a location based on the street address that I type in.  I am using the same street address that I would use in Google Maps: <street number> <street name>, <city name>, <state name> US.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks ahead of time...

If there's a problem with GEO location, it would be nice to let the rest of us
who use Omni know the details. Thanks
