Set the initial dump1090-fa map location

Finally got around to getting my piaware system set up. Works, looks good.

But when I go to /dump1090-fa the default center is somewhere in Italy.

I’m sure there is a way to change this.

Can someone clue me in where the magic needs to go?


If you configure your receiver location on your stats page (, then restart piaware, dump1090-fa will pick up on that location.

I’ve put together another PiAware receiver with a universal rtl-sdr dongle, PiAware 3.3 package based install.
Claimed the site, but it is not showing up on my stats page and cannot set location.
It’s been a few hours since I claimed the receiver.

Did you also restart piaware and dump1090-fa as indicated by OBJ above?

Yes, rebooted the Raspberry Pi.
