Hi,

I'm looking for a widget that highlights the closest feature to where I am.  Is there one ?

I checked out eLocate  widget and look like it doesn't have that feature.

Thanks

Helen,

   No you are correct there is nothing out there that will take your GPS location and show you POIs near by. But a developer could tie the my Location widget to to the Near Me widget using a reverse geocode of the myLocation point to get an address to plug into the Near Me search dijit.

Helen,

   That is exactly what the OTB Near Me widget does.

Robert,

I didn't see that feature with Near Me widget.  All I see is an address search option.  

I saw a request for enhancement:

* Allow user to use current detected location (if available) rather than searching an address or dropping a pin on the map Description of Enhancement: Provide an option to use the 'current detected".

Am I missing anything ?  Is the "detected location" already there and I just didn't configure the widget right ?
