Map position to user location when screen initalize

Is ther a way to position the map view port to the user location when screen initalize? I tryed “pan to user location” when screen initialize. And I tryed set center to string user lon/langitude.

You must wait that the gps can connect before

if in doubt, just check the documentation…

If true, Android device can report longitude and latitude.


gps is enabled, if the property ProviderName of the location sensor contains the string gps, see also the example “Get Available SSIDs” here App Inventor Extensions: WiFi | Pura Vida Apps
