Receiver Location Wrong

On my site configuration I manually entered my exact location and nearest airport and both show correctly listed in the Site Information. But on my PiAware SkyAware, the map shows my location about 1/8 mile away.

How can I correct this?

Set JSON_LOCATION_ACCURACY=2 in /etc/default/dump1090-fa, assuming you don’t mind exposing your exact location to anyone with access to your local SkyAware (usually only an issue if you’re exposing it to the internet). The default setting (1) rounds the displayed receiver location info for privacy reasons.
