Show my location

With “Show my location”, users can see their location on the map.

Users can start “Show my locations” by clicking or tapping on the “current location” icon on the map.

The map is automatically centered on the user’s location, and an animated dot shows the user’s location on the map.

With mobile devices, the user location is actively monitored for changes and the map will automatically update to reflect the location changes, keeping the location dot in the center.

How to enable “Show my location”?

To enable the “Show my location” button:

Click on Settings > Basemap > Navigation > Enable the “Show My Location” feature.
