Home Forums Avenza Maps Feature Requests Map Collections?? Reply To: Map Collections??


Hi Joe,

Thank you for post. When you are looking at your location in your Map Collection, is the GPS/Compass follow option on? If you are on an Android, at the top toolbar, to the left of the Add Placemark tool, there is a compass/GPS button (on iOS, bottom toolbar beside Add Placemark). Tap that to turn that on the ‘Follow me’ option, which will allow your GPS to follow your location.

Are your maps far apart in the collection? If they do not line up side to side or overlap slightly and there is a gap between the maps, that could be why it is not automatically following your location.

Once the GPS/Compass is turned on to ‘Follow me’ (the circle on Android will be full, on iOS the arrow will be coloured in), the app will follow your location.

If none of the above solves your issue, please send an email to with the titles of the maps, as well as specifics about your device (make, model, app version).
