    I'm trying to look at market place adds within 200 miles of "my location", but it's not working.

    My "current search" is

    Looking for: all for sale ads for machines and other stuff, located in United States no further than 100 mi (160 km) away

    (why doesn't Pinside support markdown?)

    I'm in Atlanta, GA. I get a single result for Brooklyn, MI. Maps tells me that's 700 miles away.

    Playing around with other distances and/or different "find what" doesn't help. I either get nothing or inappropriate results.

    Pinside knows I'm in Atlanta because it's in my profile and under the distance filter it says "Looking around your location (Atlanta, GA).

    Anyone seeing this?

    Interesting. Just tried it again and it failed. Pics below.

    Setting up search:

    Definitely wrong for me.

    I thought I followed-up here, but guess I didn't.

    There is absolutely something broken.

    However, the work around is to change my location.

    Specifically, searching with Atlanta as my location is 100% broken. But changing it to a location near Atlanta works.

    There is an Atlanta, Michigan. Perhaps Pinside doesn't respect the state uniformly when doing searches? This may explain why some Michigan values were appearing.

    Maybe you were searching Atlantis, which could have been in Lake Michigan at one time.
