Press 'Locate' and browser positioning will try to ascertain your position based on WiFi signals. You may need to give your permission for browser positioning. If found, the position is displayed with a blue marker.
Franson provides tools in GPSGate to allow web pages to read the position from a GPS connected to a local computer in a safe and controlled way.
You need to make sure that you have GpsGate 2.6 or later installed, and have "GPS in Browser" added as an Output. You also need a built-in GPS or a GPS connected to your computer and GpsGate must be running. Alternatively you can use the software to simulate routes if no GPS feed is available.
If a valid position is available a blue marker is displayed. If there is no valid position a black marker is shown at a default position. The current browser information is also available below the map.
Press 'Email' to email the positions of the markers for future reference:
