    Is there a way to get the GPS coordinated of the person filling up the form. You have widgets that's supposed to do that but it does not work. As  a mater of fact, please review your widgets as a lot of them does not work anymore.

    Which widget did you test that is not working properly? The widgets that are used to capture location, like GPS Location or Geolocation require Google Maps API key.

    Have you tested the widget with the Google Maps API key?

    yup, I have placed the API key. I used the GPS location widget and it works on my desktop but would not register any coordinates when I fill up the form from an iphone or android. Any thoughts?
    Thanks,

    I have just created a test form using the GPS Location Widget and it seems to be working properly on PC and Mobiles after adding the Google Maps API Key.

    Form URL: https://form.jotform.com/90376954774977

    Can you please try using the GPS Location Widget instead of the Geolocation Widget?

    Please make sure that you ALLOW location access in your device when it is requested. You might need to open the form in Private Mode (Incognito) to get the location access prompt again.
