If you are able to register your sensor with your latitude/longitude with the myAcurite portal then you can consider that as the correct one. For people who purchased myAcurite in a different region wherein, myAcurite did not allow you to register with your country/state/city latitude/longitude then you can get your latitude/longitude information through ‘google maps’ and locate your exact location using maps and right-click to get the lat & long info and keep it handy.
