I just tried that, says I'm 100 miles south of where I
really am. That's  quite a long way out in a small
country like England.

Only 100 miles?  I entered the address of a box I have in
Virginia, and it  says it's in California.  Well at least
it got the country right.
One of the geolocation thingies said my addresses were in
Amsterdam.  That's only 10,000 miles from Hawaii.  2500
miles more and that's exactly the opposite side of the
planet...  ;-)
Sometimes knowing which planet you are dealing with can be useful...
