    You can add the state or country to the town/city.

    For Wembley I had to do wembley+uk otherwise it sent me info on Wembley, WA (That's about as far as you can get from my wembley.)

    So for Miami,AZ I would assume Miami+AZ would get you the correct data.

    Google Weather could be used for a basic weather plugin, the current plugin shows a lot more information (humidity, pressure, chance of precipitation - most for day and night times).

    @PhilG: Never seen this - if you install RR using the installer you should be able to just overwrite the dll with this one and it should work. The path you posted had a "|" in it which doesn't seem right ( C:\ProgramFiles\RideRunner\Plugins|Weather\ Weather.dll )

    I guess the question, would there be any advantage of using Google weather (as far as data), that has less information, compared to the new dll that is already working, with far more information available? As for the setup for the new one, go to the site, sign up for a key, and put it in your rr.ini. Takes 2 minutes, and has to only be done once.

    Well a pluigin for google could always be done.

    No harm in having more than one plugin for weather, then if one falls over you have a backup.

    Or code both sites into the plugin and have a switch that lets the user decide which source to use.

    It's true, no harm in having more than one plugin... the google weather has about the same info for "today" just lacks some info for the next days (so the current 5 day screen would look somewhat empty - but making a new forecast screen should look ok).

    Can you please try the version I just uploaded to the first post? I hope to have fixed this bug now.

    Hi, does the "weatherdegrees" is not necessary anymore? Because I input this field in value of "C" and set the "weatherunits" in "WORLD", finally the display is XX C C
