My hotspot is showing that its located in FL, but I am in MA, and I can't find a way to change it to the correct location ? There must be a way to correct this. I also have a 3rd Hotspot listed under my hotspots, which has NEVER existed. I can't find a way to remove that either. It has been showing up for over a month now. Any help would be appreciated.

The third hotspot should eventually vanish, provided its not somehow from someone else and is active. BM purges "idle" hotspots after 30d or so.

I had configuration issues when I first got mine, when I redid it I had two, but the one that was no longer "active" did vanish.

Hello. Typically the GPS location are located in the configuration files of the hotspot itself. If you can indicate what type of hotspot you are using along with software versions; other users may provide you with more assistance. Thanks!

BM gathers location information from configuration file of hotspots during connection handshake.
