Setting the Weather to your Region

One of the first things I like to do after installing the build, is to setup the Weather Widgets to display the weather for my area. This can be done quickly and easily, once you know where to go in the build.

  • Starting from the SYSTEM section of the main menu, go down to the submenu and click on Weather Details
  • At the far left you will notice a small tab connected to a thin vertical bar. This is called a "Side-Blade" which pops out with menu options when you click on the small tab. Click on it now.
  • Click on Settings in the side blade. This will take you to the "Services - Settings" screen of Kodi.
    Side Note: You can also get to this by clicking on "SYSTEM" from the main menu, then clicking on "Services".
  • Make sure "Weather" is highlighted, then from the right hand screen click on "- Settings".
  • Now click on "Location 1" and enter the town you live in. If you live in a small town or rural area, enter a town that's close to you. Options will pop up to try and identify your location. Click on the one that applies to you. If you want more than one location (to see the weather elsewhere) you can do so. The Side-Blade of the weather screen allows you to scroll through the locations you entered.
  • When you are done, click "Ok" and back out of those screens until you get back to the main menu.

    Celsius and Fahrenheit

    Some countries use Celsius, while others use Fahrenheit for temperatures. To change this, you need to go into your system settings. This is very simple to do.
  • From the Main Menu click on "SYSTEM" then click on "Interface".
  • Highlight "Regional" then move to the right of the screen and click on "Region default format".
  • Click on your Region and all applicable settings will be adjusted for you. In some countries like Canada there are people who still use the old Fahrenheit because that's what they are used to. You will see on this screen that you can manually adjust the individual settings for Region (including language) and set them to whatever you want. When you are done, you can back out of these screens and return to the main menu.
