Same here. All was fine until the most recent update. Now I get
the error all the time. But the widget still shows the correct city
and weather. I just have the annoying error message at the top.

For each of you, I need :
- To know the exact issue. Why do you say geolocation does work ? -
Are the values good in Forecast Screen ? - Are you sure you are on
4.04 version ? - Did you try to clear the application data ? - If
you answered to the 4 previous questions (and wrote here of
course), please add a log (info : http//bit.ly/lvllogs )
Hi, I'm having a "geolocation" problem too.
It displays "null" all the time but if i set the location I am at
manually, it finds it ok and displays it ok. I'm on 2.3.5 and the
latest version of BW. It seemed to start after the last update.
I've tried numerous ROM's from ICS through to this fairly stock
Vodafone UK 2.3.5 and they all have the same problem with BW
I think after using my phone again for a little longer after the
last rebuild (went back to 2.3.5 from ICS), I suspect the problem
is when GPS is weak or unable to find a location.
In previous versions of BW, it would simply leave the last
location displayed, but in this version, it displays a rather ugly
"Null" word in both the main widget and the weather screen.
For example, while my phone is sat by my PC in the house, it
displays Null but once I go outside, it updates correctly.
I'm not sure if the problem I am experiencing is quite the same
as the guys above, as it does seem to work ok once I'm outside.
Although, what i've said above might not be quite correct since
I witnessed something that kinda goes against that theory.
I discovered last week that when i left the UK and went to China
for a week (so my GPS was on but my internet connection wasn't - I
don't have an international roaming contract), the last location BW
had updated to (i.e. the airport) displayed for the entire time I
But as soon as i got back and the internet was connected again and
I was back inside my house where GPS is weak, it started displaying
I am on the latest version (v4.04) off the Android Market.
Let me know if you want logs... just wondering if my description of
the problem helps at all.
You exactly described the problem the last version encounter.
For now, the better solution is to use the mobile data for the
By the way, a new release should come soon to fix this issue.
One further thing I noticed last night, if I go to the Geolocation
setting and press the red X to clear all previous locations and add
a new "geolocation", I can see that the program knows my location
(if i untick the geolocation option, it lists the location where I
am correctly) and I've checked that from inside my house I can see
GPS satelites with GPS test app. But for some reason, when i retick
the Geolocation option, and add the location as a "geolocation" and
save and apply, it reverts back to "Null".
Fyi, Google maps gets my location accurate to 20m were I am with
Hope that extra information helps.
I've updated and I'm afraid, it hasn't fixed all the
It is still displaying NULL in the widget even if I clear the
location settings and add "Geolocation" as a location. It knows my
current location if I untick the Geolocation option while adding a
geolocation location, but it still displays NULL on the widget.
I use 3.2 on my galaxy tab 10.1. I cannot get geolocation to
find me. I can't get to logs bc BW stops & I have to force
close. I can't get to your server in skins market. Nothing has
worked for a week. Everything ok on my samsung infuse but it still
runs on the old froyo system. Only way I can get BW to work on the
tab is to manually tell it where I am. Will fix come soon?

@Shree: Are you using Google Service or Accuweather ? Since a
few days, there's an issue with Google Service. Please try
Accuweather until our developers can have a look on that (they are
currently working on a brand new version of Beautiful Widgets). Can
you tell me the name of the location you have problem with ?
Indeed isn't a BW problem, but about the ROM, I'm using a Desire
HD and after some tests I've noticed that some chief are able to
run GPS better than others,for example,all roms with sense working
very fine, while many pure android roms didn't work at all, so,you
have to test :p
