    Hi Eyal

    I have purchased “Global Maps” and “Nearby Location” and expected a continuous auto-location of the users position to be a part of one of those extensions. I have now read about the other extensions in your extensions-portfolio. I can’t figure out if any of the other extensions offers this functionality? Can you clarify? Thanks.

    Hello Claus and thank you for the purchase.

    and expected a continuous auto-location of the users position to be a part of one of those extensions

    Do you mean for the plugin to automatically keep tracking the user’s location as the user’s is moving?

    Unfortunately, this feature is not yet exists in GEO my WP nor in any of the add-ons.

    Google Maps API does not yet provide the ability to track the user’s location. So the only way to retrieve the user’s location at the moment is using the browser. And the browser must ask for the user’s permission before retrieving his location.

    I hope that Google will provide such feature in the future so I could integrate it with GEO my WP.

    I’m sorry to hear that.

    There are real-life examples of webapps that use the Geolocation WatchPosition with Google Maps API. For instance:

    Working with Geolocation watchPosition() API

    After the users acceptance the WatchPosition object tracks the users position continuously which you can test with the live demo. Anyway, there is probably a good reason why this is not possible to implement in Geo My Wp.

    Thanks
