MMM-NOAA3 - user defined lat & lon values

I stopped using NOAA due to the wunderground issue.
Luckily NOAA3 now has been issued and that works like a charm, but for one issue.
It uses http://ip-api.com/json to determine latitude and longitude.
After (re)starting MM, a file called latlon.json it being created, with the info provided by ip-api.com.
As I mentioned before in another thread, in my case the location is of by 67 km’s, which is quite a bit.
And some users are interested in other locations (rotating through different locations would be anoher feature request).
As a work-around I updated the providers/wb.js file and adopted the line with “var text = fs.readFileSync(‘modules/MMM-NOAA3/latlon.json’,‘utf8’)” and provided my own latlon.nuremberg.json file.
But it would be nice to have a config option to do so.
When empty or not present, then to the http://ip-api.com/json routine, when present, then use userLatlonJson file.
The work-around works for me, but it would be nice to do without.

@evroom You are reading my mind…working on it … instead of having it read a json file it would be easier to just allow users to add their own lat and lon…
