Presest geopoint with my current location

I have a survey with a geopoint question type. In the field the user shall mark the exact position where he/she is working.

For the sake of faster navigation, I want to preset the geopoint with my current location without having to use a GPS device. Mobile devices should provide at least some rough location information (nearest antenna?).

Is there any possibility to determine a rough estimate of my current location from the device (PC, tablet, mobile) I am using? (Unfortunately, the property() function does not provide any coordinates.)

Any other ideas, who I can do the trick?

Thank you very much, best regards,

Hi Jürgen,

Survey123 will request the current location on opening of the survey automatically.  As you indicate, depending on the device, this may come from a variety of locational cues.
