Android Build a Weather App (2015) Hooking Up the Model to the View Plugging in the Data

Can't switch to weather of another location.

I just tried to change latitude and longitude to 39.2833, -76.6167, the forecast web does show the data, but the Log information in Android Studio is still for LA.

Is it that the weather data is no different than the values you get from the lesson in LA, or is it just that the application still displays the name of the location as LA?

The lesson hard-coded the name of the location as an explicit string, so if you're just adapting the project to your own location, you'd just need to make the change to the name (either in the activity_main.xml, or in your string resources file).
