GPS must be activated on your device.
Use the "help" icon for instructions.
New zoom feature works up to 1000 miles away.
Hold camera level. Adjust zoom factor if desired or necessary. Aim. Shoot. Follow on-screen directions.
If your device appears to be pointing in the wrong direction, move the device in as if drawing a "figure 8" to re-calibrate.
If stuck on "charging, please wait" first make sure you have activated gps on your device.
If you are indoors walk towards a door or window, your device is looking for a gps fix. Sometimes, just waving your device around picks up the gps signal.
If you are in the country, desert, near a canyon or facing a large body of water, point and zoom towards a road. You may need to increase the zoom factor if you are far away from a road.
Try zooming different distances and facing different directions when you zoom. It''s a lot of fun to visit an area miles away!
Table of zoom factors:
1) - 60 ft.
2) - 120 ft.
3) - 240 ft.
4) - 360 ft.
5) - 480 ft.
10) - 2880 ft.

The best setting for urban areas is generally zoom factor="2", though some high-density areas such as Manhattan or the East-end may benefit from zoom factor="1" or even zoom factor="0". (zoom factor="0" may exhibit strange behavior, kind of like taking a picture of the back of your head!)
For suburban areas minimum zoom factor should roughly range from 3 - 6, depending upon the distance between roads.
Rural areas will generally require higher zoom factors.
