I have it all working now using request maker I even got it to change the weather to my local area (my own post code) and its spot on. I can also now find nearby information such as takeaway, hospitals etc. Install request maker in Chrome.Log onto Alexa on my PC http://alexa.amazon.com/Go to settings. Change address to an American address. Then save. On the top/right - select the envelope and looked for the XHR PUT pitangui.amazin.com/api/…Then use request maker to edit raw text as follows:Important: DO NOT change the label value at any point!Firstly, set your timeZoneId (e.g. America/Toronto), leave everything else as is and hit “Send”.Then, add the following to your request (keep the timeZoneId changed, each step builds on the last):1. Set the city value to your city/suburb (e.g. Toronto)2. Set countryCode (e.g. CA)3. Set county (e.g. Toronto)4. Set district (most likely — null)5. Set houseNumber (e.g. 54)6. Press “Send” to send those valuesThen, once those have been sent, add changes to the following in the same way:1. Set the first postalCode (e.g. M5K 6G4)2. Set state (e.g. ON)3. Set street (e.g. Grand Lake)4. Press “Send” to send those valuesLastly:1. Update the second postalCode (e.g. M5K 6G4)2. Press “Send” to send that value.The Label will update itself based on your input above. Weather and asking for nearby restaurants all work. Asking for my location also gives me the correct information. So long as you get 200 OK it will be successful. [emoji1] 🇨🇦Cheers,AlexCheers,Alex
Great instructions Alex, this worked perfectly, thanks for taking the time to post.
got any tips for why i'm not seeing anything in my chrome request plugin?
yes followed your instructions further up the page here.edit address to a different US Addressclick saveclick on chrome request in the top right and its empty.several times i've tried now, so really no idea whats going on with it. if i open a new tab i can see that content in requests for that tab.
ok i did a reboot and seemed to have managed to capture it and ive managed to edit it, thank for helping me outnow, the only other problem is that i live in Costa Rica. believe it or not, they dont have street addresses here. its crazy. at least the time is working fine. thanks again!!!
