Unfortunately, you cannot change your location manually. Skout is a location-based app, which is part of what makes Skout special. Your location is automatically generated using your phone's GPS settings. To ensure the safety of our users, however, Skout provides general rather than specific location information. Please make sure the GPS on your smartphone is enabled.
Go to Settings -> Location Services -> Check GPS Satellites
On iPhone you may have to allow access to your GPS:
Go to Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services -> Scroll down to Skout and make sure it is set "on".
