Allow user to show current location in Maps (newest version)

In the Classic version of Glide, when using a map layout, we could toggle on “Allow user to show current location”. Please implement this in the newest version of Glide :grinning:

Correct-a-mundo! Super helpful when an app’s main use case is to navigate & display locations nearby. I could use Radar and some CSS/row trickery to get my user’s location to show up as a pin with actual locations, but this feature was clutch in Classic!

Yeah, I’ve used a trick in the past where one of the rows in my table stores the location component value, then I use an IF column to return either the user location from that one row, or the other locations from the rest of the rows. Then display the IF result on a map. I’m not sure it works as well as it used to now. Doesn’t seem to update the location as rapidly, and without CSS, the pin is indistinguishable from the rest.
