You must first ensure that your device has the necessary GPS hardware. If you have correct GPS hardware, make sure your location services are enabled for WikiCamps.
To enable your device to connect with satellites, you should have a clear line of sight to the sky.
Please note: Most laptops/PC's do not have GPS hardware - nor do the current generation of Wi-Fi only iPads.
If your device does not have GPS then make sure you're connected to a Wi-Fi network with a known location. Your device will then use this network location as your location; however, this can be inaccurate.
