After that, on the map a marker will appear, the position of which will be updated when new coordinates are received from the GPS/GLONASS receiver (see Figure 13).

In order that the center of the map automatically would move to the point with the coordinates received from the GPS/GLONASS receiver, it is necessary to press the button "Holding the current position" (see Figure 14).
