How do i specify my location?

Some of the channels I download need my location (weather info, movie info, restaurants, etc).  How can I do this?  When I go to the "specify city" link on my handheld (Clie T665C), I can't enter the zip code or other info.

Thanks, and you've developed a really nice service!

Your questions refers to customizable channels. There are two ways in general to do that.

1. Through the URL, i.e. there is more information in the internet address of a web page than just the location

2. Through cookies.

I've tried to give example for each customizable channel. If you have problems, please tell me the specific channel you are referring to, then it's easier to help.
