FlightAware not zooming to my location?

Hello, I’m a relatively new FA user and I can’t get the web-based map to zoom to my location when I click the “button”. I’m using Chrome on MacOS 11.6.

Thanks in advance, anyone.

Did you set you location in the configuration screen ? It’s located at the topright of your flightfeeder page after loggin in, click on the grey wheel to open that sceen. after setting your location and height is wll pinpoint your location.

Hey, Tom. I’ve looked and I can’t see anything such as you suggest… ? I looked through all my account settings, also.

I appreciate your help.

I’m attaching a screenshot of my MyFlightAware page.

Go to your personal FlightAware page at https://flightaware.com/adsb/stats/user/[your user name]. Click on the wheel to to set your configuration.

I think I may have answered my own question. I don’t have my own ADS-B receiver setup. I’m just a newbie user looking at FA’s tracking maps.

I guess that’s why I can’t “set a location”…

That’s the answer indeed in that case :wink:
