    It there a ready made tool or widget so that a mobile user (filling in a form) can simple press a button and have their location entered into the form or a map on the form?

    Thank you.

    The closest widget is http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/address_map_locator.

    This widget allows the user to set their location through a map. All they need to do first is type in the name of the city, the map then loads. Then they can use the tack to pin point their location.

    I tested it on my android devices (Chrome) and it worked.

    Do let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.
