Locating with GPS and Compass (Windows)

Last Updated: Jul 20, 2016 08:57AM EDT

Location
Note this feature requires GPS to be enabled on your device. If you do not have GPS enabled the device IP will be used to determine location.
Tap the GPS icon to find your location on the map. Your location is displayed as a blue dot. The blue transparent circle is an indication of the accuracy of the GPS fix. If you're not physically within the extents of the map, "Not on map" will be displayed where the map coordinates are.



On devices with built-in GPS, your location will be triangulated within a few seconds. Depending on your device and available services, your location is determined using a combination of cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Learn more about location access on Windows here.
 
Compass
Tap the GPS icon again to enable the Compass. A compass appears in the top-right of the map view. The map rotates to align with the direction you are facing, which is indicated by the arrow on the blue location dot.



You can also rotate the map manually using a two-finger rotate gesture.
To set the map north-up or to exit GPS mode, tap the compass in the top-right of the map view.
To exit GPS mode but remain with an oriented map rotation, tap the GPS icon.
