My Location

To view your own location using the browser, select Location from the menu.

The browser is asked to provide your current location. You may need to allow permission before the location is provided. After a short delay, you location details are displayed at the top of the page and a marker showing you location is displayed on the map. You location information remains private and is not automatically recorded anywhere else at this stage.

There is a checkbox titled Request high accuracy location. Selecting this option potentially provides a more accurate location. Some browsers will not provide a location at all without this option selected.

Click the Update position button to request a new location.

You can choose to display your location in a variety of formats by selecting different values in the Display position format selection list. The chosen format is displayed directly beneath the selection list.

Recording Your Current Location

If you wish, you can manually record the current location in your track log. If you want to include a note together with your location, type it into the Note field. To save your current location in your track log, click the Record this position button.
