    Is there a way (or usefulness thereof) of setting the Maps "Current location" on a Mac Pro that has no Wi-Fi? Naturally, since it isn't a portable computer, the "Current location" should be my usual address, where the computer is located. So, is there a way for Maps, in such an environment, to be aware of its location?

    Unfortunately no, unless you install a Wi-Fi card.

    Which contact card? Naturally, my name and address also appear in my Contacts app, but I must be missing something. Should I somehow associate the Mac Pro's location with my address? Shouldn't the computer "know" that by default?

    You've a contact card. Go into your user account in settings and there's an option to associate this. It's the only difference I can see.

    Yes, the computer already knows who I am and where I live. Still no "Current location" in Maps. Oh, well; it isn't that important.
