  3. Change the Time Zone
    I don’t know why suddenly Singapore is not inside Asia’s list, therefore I select China Standard Time (Shanghai)

    PS: There is a possibility where by you cannot choose anything from drop down list. The work around is to edit and saved the postal code above time zone.

Modify your traffic information

  1. Visit this URL http://alexa.amazon.com/spa/index.html#settings/traffic
  2. Click “Change address” and enter from and to address

    • i dont know if it’s because that but, i turned off my phone (to avoid it to refresh or change anything)
      in Desktop chrome i log out my alexa account
      close Chrome then open it again and log on Alexa account again.
      then changed the address and PUT was there.

  1. Thank you for the tutorial – very detail and useful, now that the local time and traffic are working OK. There are 2 parameters which i am not sure if need to change: “TimeZoneRegion” and “TimeZone” … both are NULL and your screen captured value have shown “Asia”.

    Also, I tried to ask “Alex, my timezone” and its response is US central standard time (even I have changed all settings to Singapore)… is it possible to correct the timezone response?

    Amazon seems to have updated the setup menu and added “Device time zone” in Settings with its software version 564196920.

  2. Address change no longer works, and hasn’t since about mid last year. Also, there is no need to mess about so much to change the timezone, it’s now selectable in the settings page for the device on the Alexa website
