    For GeoLocation, we have this widget which is best for this purpose: https://www.jotform.com/widgets/geo-stamp.

    Hi there,

    You can try the Geolocation widget instead.

    https://www.jotform.com/widgets/geolocation

    Please note that you'll need a working Google Map API key to use this widget.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.

    First off, I see you're adding the widget through its page. Please don't do that as it creates a new form in your account. Add the widget directly through the form builder as per the guide here: https://www.jotform.com/help/252-how-to-add-a-widget-to-your-form.

    Second, you have to provide the actual Google API key, not the script. The following guide will help you get the key:

    Please let us know if you still cannot get it to work.

    Thank you.
