"this atm is far away" should be accepted also

If the ATM is far from the speaker, shouldn't it be "that ATM" rather than "this ATM"?

How can "this" cash machine be far away. "This" more than implies a close proximity

If you are pointing at a location on a map, then it could make sense.

"this atm is far" should also be accepted, far and far away are practically the same thing

This bank machine is far away.
(Sep 11, 2020: Marked incorrect, should be accepted.)

The reason is this: Our machines have functions just as banks do. We can deposit cheques, transfer money, pay a bill, or get cash. It's not just a "cash" machine. In Canada and the US it is called a 'bank machine' and is acceptable to do so.

Can someone please add "bank machine" in place of cash machine as an acceptable answer - along with cash machine and ATM? Thank you!
