Please note that the GPS Feature is supported on the iOS and Android Apps by default. This guide is for use on a browser. We currently recommend using Firefox or Safari.

Location Services allows location-based apps and websites (including Maps, Camera, Safari, and other Apple/Android and third-party apps) to use information from cellular, Wi-Fi, and Global Positioning System (GPS) networks to determine your approximate location. To use features such as these, you must enable Location Services on your device and give your permission to each app or website before it can use your location data.
