Sunset & sunsire wrong for Amsterdam, Netherlands

This morning, I noticed that my sunset & sunrise times as reported by Indigo7 are wrong.

I'm in Amsterdam (52.370N / 4.895W). Sunrise is showing as 7:37am and sunset as 7:19pm. However, according to the weather channel, these should be 6:59am and 6:41pm. I noticed as the lights were still on yet the sun was clearly visible already (and nice and warm after a long time! :D ).

I am using the "Override system location" option to enter latitude and longitude. I have used the link on the Sunset & Sunrise preference page to lookup these. I have also looked up my coordinated on Google Maps so am fairly certain that they are correct as is.

I first was suspecting this having to do with USA going to DST last weekend, but that would have caused an 1 hour deviation, no 38 minutes. So, I am a little lost by now.

Any thoughts, anyone? Could any of the Dutch users check their values and report them here?

Many thanks,
Ronald

Hi Ronald,

I'm living in Belgium and it's working here.
Make sure you've selected the East button for the Longitude instead of West.

If I look up your location, you should have:
52.370748 North
4.886813 East

:oops: Oops... :shock:

Feeling a little silly now. That was exactly my mistake. I clearly was so focused on the coordinates that I never even noticed the East/West selection. Mine clearly was set to West, and should have been East.

Thanks Woetjes!
