Can the NearMe widget use my device GPS location?

It appears the out-of-the-box NearMe widget does not search 'near me' by using my device's GPS but instead requires me to enter an address or place or select a point on the map? Is there any way to configure it to utilize device location?

I have not tried this but couldn't you turn on the My Location Widget to get your GPS location and then turn on the NearMe widget and select your location on the map to get results?

How can I use the current location (GPS)  in NearMe widget  instead of selecting a location?  e.g if I want to show feature results while the user is traveling in the environment. Thank you so much for your help.
