How the heck do you send GPS location (from phone GPS)?

So I have two Heltec Boards connected fine to my mobile phones, the boards don’t have GPS , so I figured I would go to the Map tab on the mobile app and just use my phones GPS to send the coordinates… but I see the map, but don’t see a way to “drop a pin” or somehow send the GPS location … What am I missing? Im on Android by the way… Everything else works great (sending text messages) …

Got it! I’ll answer my own post… a couple of details…

  • Check make sure youir Mobile APP permissions for Location and Storage are allowed for Meshtatic APP
  • Wait and Make sure you’re phones GPS has enough Sats to get a Fix
  • The Users Tab on the APP will show the last known coordinates after an initial GPS fix is determined.
