Tap the GPS arrow in the My Location screen (it comes up when you tap on the map from the dashboard). The GPS meter is replaced with a search box, type a location or use the address book to enter a saved location.
This can happen because of two reasons:
- You might have manually set your location to a place other than where you are now. You can check this by tapping on the map from the dashboard, the location pin on the top right corner will pop up a message in red indicating Automatic Location is Off. Tap on the pin to turn on automatic location, the pin will now be replaced with a GPS arrow.
- GPS connectivity might be low. Tapping on the map on the dashboard reveals the GPS meter at the top. If the GPS meter is showing one red line or two green lines, the connectivity must be low, so point your device outside your window – the GPS meter will automatically show 3-4 green bars, indicating positioning is more accurate. Make sure either 3G or Wi-Fi are on for optimal location detection.
- If the above doesn’t fix your location, contact support and we’ll help you out quickly!
