Hi,

It gets the city wrong in the case of Antwerp, Belgium. Updated results on
the site. Wonder if this is an isolated problem only with me, cos I was
accessing through my Uni. But, if it happens even outside then it is off by
about 50+ km!

Have updated the meta page with the results.

Regards,
Prashanth
