Nokia 808 USA weather widget stuck in Celsius

I have my map suite 2.0 weather app set to Farenheight.  But no matter what my weather widget is stuck in Celsius?

 

I have quit the widget, added it back to my desktop, rebooted, no matter what I only get my forcast in Celsius.

 

On my E7 I was using the betalabs widget and it works fine, I was wondering if I should intall the beta labs widget on my 808 and see if it fixes things?  or am i asking for trouble?

Hey Kev187, Thank you for your query!

 

Have you tried to open the weather application and opened the options menu on the bottom far right hand side, you will find the option called units and from there you are able to customise the units by which the weather information is shown.

 

Let me know how it goes!

 According to the Beta labs, the beta widget will install over the top of the pre-installed widget. If things don't work out you can un-install the Beta version and the original will still be intact and working.

 

 My best suggestion is for you to try the Beta version which won't do any damage.

 

All the best.

After downloading the beta apps versions, intsall, reboot, problem solved.

...and your problem is? This is probably by design, to show that there is a whole world of metric beyond the US shores... :smileyhappy:

Re: Nokia 808 USA weather widget stuck in Celsius

 Here in the UK we tend to use the metric system in the winter and imperial in the summer. So, -10 Celsius sounds a lot colder than +14 Fahreneit in the winter. Similarly, 80 Fahreneit sounds a lot hotter than 26.6 Celsius.
