Which Location Provider is chossen in your Piwik configuration?
The dafult provider guesses the country based on the user language.
To improve that you may need to switch to any kind of geoLocation.
If you have already choosen a geoLocation provider, the results are based on external data, but should fit in most cases.


Thank You Steve

And forgive my ignorance :slight_smile:

I have installed now the geo IP and seems to be working ok .

Have a nice day !
