Get My Position not 100% accurate

if the ‘Get my Position’ function does not work properly or gets the wrong location, then you need to check the following:

Are you on HTTPS / SSL? Because if no https is setup our plugin falls back to IP gelocatlion which is not as 100% accurate. With https enabled our plugin uses the native Browser HTML5 Gelocalation.

Unfortunately it is not possible to use the HTML5 Gelocation without HTTPS due to browser restrictions.

    Hello,

    We love the dealer locator! Although, the “GET POSITION” button on the back-end (when adding a location) is not functioning. Additional message: “Oops! Something went wrong.
    This page didn’t load Google Maps correctly. See the JavaScript console for technical details.”

    Is this a result of the HTTPS / SSL mentioned above? I assume having this button functional will improve the input efficiency; rather than hunting for the longitude and latitude manually.

    Any insight or assistance would be greatly appreciated!
