Hi, I will assist,

I'm sorry about the issue. Please go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services (if it's not there, go to Settings > Location Services), then make sure it is turned ON, then check. Also, there, go to System Services, and turn on location service for individual app/item if needed, then check.

If needed, please press and hold both the Power button and the Home buttons together for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears, then wait a bit, then check.

 


Please let me know if there is still any issue.

 

Edit: It looks like you are away; please reply back when you are available to continue. Thank you,

Vietnam here are the screens - how do I get around this. Am 2nd time
using my gmail email not this raywhite one and still comes up with
invalid address
Expert:  Viet - Mac Tech replied 1 year ago.

You're welcome. I'm sorry. Were you able to go into Settings and enable location?

 

When it asks to enter email address, you've put only your email user name; you should put your whole email address. For example, enter UserName @gmail.com (not UserName only.)


Does it (the marine traffic app?) ask for an Apple ID password, or is it something else?

http://appleid.apple.com/

Thank you,

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Viet it asks for password and I have tried a number of passwords including my apple password. Nothing works and I keep on getting that same message that I did a screen shot of and sent to you. Have you received them. Want to change password as easier way around it but can not see an option to do that.

Can you help,with that specifically.

I did on one occasion see an option on the marine traffic website tomchangenpasswords but can not get back to that page - just can't seem to find it.

If not, can you reset your password at

If needed, uninstall the marine traffic app, then download it again.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
