Hurricane Track Support

Country Detection

Some of Hurricane Track's features -- such as Local Radar, Regional Radar, and Textual Forecast; are for the United States only. The first time you launch Hurricane Track, it will ask you for your location. Hurricane Track then detects whether you are located in the United States or not, and if not, it disables some of the features. If you live in the United States and some features are disabled, please reset Hurricane Track to factory settings (instructions below) and try entering your location again when prompted.

Reset to Factory Settings

In order to reset Hurricane Track to Factory settings, open (located in /Applications/Utilities/) and enter the command below:
defaults delete com.machsoftwaredesign.hurricane
The next time Hurricane Track starts up, it will be reset to factory settings.
