How to Fix Invalid Location Coordinates in the Ring App

In the Ring app, zero coordinate locations (0x0) are not valid. To ensure your Ring app features are functioning properly, please add a valid address for your location.

Zero coordinate locations may cause the following issues in the app:

  • The time zone is undefined for a user’s location.
  • Map View feature in the Ring app doesn’t show the correct location on the map.
  • Users may see a black screen in the Neighbors app and the Neighbors tab may disappear in the Ring app.
  • Users may be unable to receive relevant Neighbors’ alerts due to an invalid location.
