Yes, this can happen. Flagfox and the Geotool website use different databases provided by Maxmind. Flagfox only needs to know the country and uses the GeoLite Country database. Geotool goes down to greater detail, and thus uses the GeoLite City database. We do not maintain these databases.

This is covered in more detail here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=214.

If you wish you can report this issue to Maxmind via https://support.maxmind.com/geoip-data- ... n-request/.
