In Cellica Database, User can use "Location Services" or "Apple approved external GPS accessory" like Bad Elf and "Maps" to work with location data.

Use 'Location' control while designing form. Location services use GPS along with crowd-sourced Wi-Fi hotspot and cell tower locations to determine your approximate location.

Location control can hold 8 possible values namely,
'Latitude', 'Longitude', 'Latitude/Longitude', 'Heading', 'Region', 'Altitude', 'Horizontal Accuracy', 'Vertical Accuracy'

Use "Auto Update" property to set Location control for automatic update for assigned value type during operations like New Record (OnNew) or Update Record (OnEdit) or Both.

You can use 'Data Column' with Datatype 'Double' or 'Text' for mapping with Location control.

Set 'Location Type' to 'Latitude/Longitude' to get comma separated Latitude and Longitude value.

You can view location on 'Map' using 'Button' control with 'Action' property set to 'Go To Map'. Map 'Latitude' and 'Longitude' properties to respective columns.

When you tap on this button the value for 'Latitude' and 'Longitude' is used to display location on map.

To use Location Services in Cellica Database, you first need to confirm some setting on your device.

In Settings of your device make sure Location Services are ON.
And set 'Use Location Info' to ON in preferences in Cellica Database application

You can also work with location coordinates by 'Long Press" on 'Location' or 'TextBox' control.

Long Press will give you options to get Address and Location Coordinates for current value in control as well as for current location.

You can also view the location on map by using address or location information in form control using "Show On Map' option.
