    Mapping Widgets: a widget that gives accurate location (GPS coordinates)

    Asked by Ian Lotinsky  on May 21, 2017 at 06:09 AM

    All of your location plugins appear to use IP address rather than ask the browser for GPS coordinates. Do you have plans to build a more accurate one?

    Yes, the widget tracks the IP address of the device that you are using. I think our developers are already planning to enhance the existing widgets to give an accurate location. Unfortunately, we just cannot promise our users the timeframe. 

    I have escalated this thread, so once we have an update, you will be notified as well.
