Your location

Finding your location (where am I?)

When started, Yandex.Navigator automatically finds your location and marks it with the marker.

If this point is beyond the displayed map or wasn't detected, the map displays the button.

Tap this button to find your current location.

If your precise location isn't found, the icon is displayed in a green circle. The larger the circle, the less precise your location is.


You can choose a marker for your location:

  1. Tap Menu .

  2. Go to Settings → Cursor.

  3. Choose an icon from the list.

    Available icons may differ depending on the country and the region.

What to do if Yandex.Navigator doesn't find your location

It's possible that the "Share my location" function isn't enabled on your device. To turn it on:

  1. Android 4.3 and earlier: in the menuSettings → My location, select Using GPS.
  2. Android 4.4 and later: in the menu Settings → Location → Mode, select Using all sources or Using GPS.
