[Location Plugin] How to get geolocation info with this plugin
Forge component by OutSystems R&D
Application Type
Mobile

I don't see how one's supposed to get geolocation info (ie city name, county, address etc) with this plugin.  Am I missing something?  I see that it is returning the lat/long data - am I supposed to use that with another plugin to the the geolocation details?

Hi Tom,

You can use the Google Maps component. Use CoordinatesToAddress action to fetch address based on lat/long

Thanks, Aadhavan S

or you can use this component also

Thanks for you help.  Looks like that was the answer I needed.  Of course nothing is easy.... now i'm getting an error as seen in the attached image.  I'm so close... so very close.
