HTML5 Builder, also part of RAD Studio XE3, allow you to create location-based browser and mobile applications. The Geolocation components (MGeolocation for device-based applications and Geolocation for desktop and device browser-based applications) allows you to request the location, and if the user allows it, you will be able to get the data and keep track of any change on the location, speed, heading, and more. This quick video shows you how to use the Geolocation components in three different projects that also use GoogleMaps and Open Street Map.
You’ll find additional information about building location-based applications on the Embarcadero DocWIki on the following pages:

Props to Diego and Adrian, members of our team in Spain, for their help in showing me how to use the Geolocation and MMap components in my HTML5 Builder applications.
