    Now we have the ability to turn Location Services on.
    This is a location tracker, so it will use GPS to find out exactly where you are. It can help you in many ways. If you're using a map, you'll be able to see your location and it can give you directions to your destination. It also provides a lot of other important functions such as automatically updating social media. You can read the privacy statement in regards to this if you wish.

    We have a Location Request indicator, you'll see this icon whenever an app requests your location.
    Geofence monitoring will not make the icon show up. If you don't want the icon to appear, just uncheck the box next to Show Icon. A Geofence is a boundary around a place of interest to you. Location services can monitor geofences to tell your apps when you're entering or leaving them. This phone is currently not tracking geofences.

    Once we're satisfied we can open the Maps application, and now it is showing the location.
    Without Location Services turned on, this GPS point would not appear on the map.

Questions and Answers

Can I get an app to locate other people's location?

I want to locate someone, maybe by their contacts. I have tried: Downloading some trackers but have not been successful. I think it was caused by: Lack of an app

You and your friends can install Find My Friends. SquadWatch or Locate - Find My Friends for Lumia. These applications require you and your friends to install this application and enable location services (follow the article tips for that). The great feature is that you can track several people at once and chat with them. The downside is that everyone has to use Windows Phones.
