Here is the same bug experienced by users in the UK:
The Weather widget does rely on the Android Network Provider, which is buggy on the Z5 family of phones.
I really hope a dev can look into it in details and hopefully issue a solution / patch.

I wonder if the media would be interested in Sonymobile's utter lack of support, because of course I reported the bug, multiple times , on email@example.com and was everytime redirected here. Is there truly no way to get in touch with fw devs to report a genuine, reproducible bug?
As you know this is a global user based forum, not sure why they redirected you here but have you considered live chat instead of contacting Sony through Email?

Yes I've actually no clue where to get proper support for this one.
When I contact sonymobile via mail, I'm redirected here, I believe they just don't want to deal with it, that the Z5 series is long dead to the dev team.
Yet the location bug I report can be easily reproduced (and most likely easily fixed as well) on any device in the Z5 series.
In a nutshell the "Network Location Provider" powered by Qualcomm Izat on the Z5 series is semi-broken ( com.qualcomm.location ), always starts with rounded coordinates when it shouldn't. Other Network providers on the Z5 such as "Play Network provider" or GPS based provider work just fine.
But because of the Qualcomm Izat bug, after each restart of the device the Location is way off.
It'd be really great if Sony could fix it, maybe as the last thing they do on the Z5..
