Get my location and display longtitude and latitude in separate labels

Dear fellow Kodulars,

I am having issues extracting latitude and longtitude information from Google Maps’ Get My Location block.


As you can see in the above screenshot, I get the entire location data by using the given Get My Location block, but I am not able to separate the longtitude, latitude and the precision values (which are a result of the Get My Location block).

For example, this is the output of the Get My Location block:

I was thinking of using RegEx but I could only find RegEx match which only returns True or False as the output, but is not able to copy the matched text so that I can store/use it somewhere.

So, long story short - from a text like this: (22.2222 11.1111 9.493) I want one label to dispaly 22.2222 and the second label to display 11.1111.

Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Thank you.

You should read the block description…

“Get current location using Google Map Service. Return a YailList with first item being the latitude, the second item being the longitude, and last time being the accuracy of the reading.”


Hi @mika,

Yes, that’s why I am asking. It returns 3 values, but I am unable to split those 3 values and use the values one by one.

Am I missing something in your reply?

Thank you

Yes the word YailList.
Store the result in a list.

Maybe someone else with time can help you


Ouh, a list. I wondered what that was 'cause I thought it was something from Yandex.
That seems interesting. I will try it.

Thank you for the help


Select item from list… Index1 latitude, index2 longitudes, index3 accuracy


Thank you @pipechela!
This worked out like a charm :slight_smile:
