Bug Description

Geoloc search bias doesn't work well (always US biaised).

[Original description : I live in Prague, Czech Republic. I would like to check the weather with opening the dash and typing Prague. I am shown results, but they are for Prague, US (which has 50 times less inhabitants). That is somewhat dissappointing.

Also note that "Prague, Weather" does not provide any results from weather lense. "Prague, Czech Republic" does not help either.]

Hi, thank you for the report. I confirm the bug.

For the time being, you can use this query: "weather:prague ez"

Also, have you tried "weather" ? This should give you geolocalized weather.

Yes, both (weather and "weather:prague ez") work. However, it confuses me as I have no idea what EZ means and it shows up after I type "weather". I would expect something like Prague, CZ or Prague CS or Prague Czech Republic, but not EZ. If you did not suggest it, I would have doubts if it was concerning my city or not.
