Why does the INKBIRD app need permission for my location?

Can I use it without the permission of my location?
The app keeps saying it needs my location.

did you connect it via a wifi one? my 306a also requires my locations during the connection

The local function needs to be turned on. Because the app has a local weather function, it needs to enable the location function to realize the complete function of the app.

So, what if we don’t care to have the current weather locations provided by Inkbird?
