I assume you mean the location reported when you trace your IP address. Exede uses a dynamic IP address, it changes periodically and, often on reboot of modem as well. Location will never be accurate with satellite internet service. You just have to tell websites your location manually.

If you're referring to your physical location reported to you from some web sites just keep in mind that the location seen by web sites will never be your actual location...it will reflect the location of your IP address which is assigned by Exede and will only show their Gateway, not your physical location...you have no way to change that...

Exede uses dynamic IP address assignments unless you have a business account..that means each time your modem reboots you may have a new IP address assigned, and may get a totally new physical address detected by sites that key on your IP address.
