Cities On The Radar
« on: January 30, 2009, 09:30:17 PM »
My two radar screens show some weird city locations.  I've attached screenshots of my radar screens - first one is zoomed into Vermont and northern NY, the second is the east coast zoomed out.  For the Vermont/NNY one, it seems as if its selecting cities in alphabetical order and some of those are obscure locations.  The zoomed out Northeast radar has a mix between obvious cities (Rochester, Pittsburg, Detroit, Boston) and the obscure (Amagansett - which appears to be in the middle of Long Island Sound, and Abbot Village, ME. 

Anyone else get this same thing?  Where are they getting these obscure locations from?

These maps are generated by TWC, the emulator just taps into what they provide. Dont quite know why they choose the city location that  they do. Also the maps sometimes change city and locations and you may notice it in the loop. Its not something I would worry about and its not something that can be fixed.
