User Tracking Zoom Level in Simple Map Viewer App Template

Hey All-

 

Hopefully someone can help me with this, it' driving me a little nuts. I'm trying to use the Simple Map Viewer app template to create a publicly viewable app that allows people to access data about trees in a park. Problem is that whenever I enable "track user location" in the settings, which is kind of essential to the experience, the zoom level defaults to what looks like a 1:10 scale, and when you try to pinch to zoom out, the app freezes. The "my location" toggle works fine without the tracking involved, but once tracking is involved, everything goes out the window.

 

Just some background, I'm not a programmer, so if you're recommending programming my way out of this, speak slowly and carry a small stick. This is through AGOL, not portal. Organization is not set to SSL, but I am serving up the URLs as https by just manually changing the URL to https and then using a QR code (*GASP*) to access the application. This allows me to take advantage of location services by using https, I guess, but seems really buggy.

 

Behavior seems to be across multiple devices/browsers, though I certainly haven't tested every known configuration. Any ideas? As far as I know there is no way to control the minimum zoom level at the webmap level (though this would be a great thing if I'm just missing it). Like I said, not a programmer, so if I'm missing something silly here, please be kind. Different app template maybe? Location tracking is key here, I can work around the absence of other functionality.

 

But it seems like having the end user be able to see their own location should be a no-brainer in terms of the basic functionality of a publicly viewable map. Ideas?

 

Cheers
