TODA RABA
In Hebrew  THANKS SO VERY MUCH

You have made my day, just installed and listening to NPR news...wow GREAT!

Never understood the logic behind limiting use to certain areas, stands against all that we believe in.

No problem glad you got it up and running my friend! Have you managed to regionalize it to your local area? I.e your town etc

I live in uk and I had to first bypass app issue you had! Then I  sorted the region issues so it knows I'm in uk etc! I then installed iheartradio so it works via my echo! It knows weather for my address etc

Hey did you get you region working ?

I looked up you just need to change time zone Id to Israel and it will work,

Then change the address! You just need request maker for Google chrome and get the PUT file

Hi all,

I am kind of new to Amazon Echo, and I have read some of the topics posted here. My question is - would it work (localized) if I purchase it? I am from Romania - Bucharest, and I would like to know if it would work here as well. I do not intend to use the shopping/pizza ordering functions, but more for the local weather, traffic, news/local news sort of things.

Thank you very much for your ideas/opinions.

@mtagt:

I was able to set up the time zone, however address did not work.
How did you manage to get weather etc. for your location?

I followed some guides, however, if I do not change the label, I get a 400 bad response and when I change it I get a 200 OK, but Alexa is still at the old location, so no changes actually happen
