Hi Everyone,

When I initially started using this brilliant site, I declined to let the site know my location. 

However, now it would be really useful if I could use the mapping tool feature: 'use current location', but as I initially declined to let the site know my location, I can't currently use this when route planning. 

How do I reset my geolocation settings and say 'Yes' to the site having access to my current location?

With thanks to the community for any help offered, Georgia

Change ‘Location’ from ‘Deny’ to ‘Allow’ and it should work.

On Android it looks similar but you tap the ‘Lock’ icon, by the look of it:
