phone indicated location ON, does that mean privacy on or GPS on ?

That means location services are on, which means the geo caching app should know your location.

so how do I get it onscreen? thanks for your patience!

I need the exact model of your phone. There are several Optimus types. Optimus Elite, Optimus M, Optimus V, etc. Try to locate the box the phone came in for this info, or check if it is listed on the back.

You can use Sprint Navigator but it is a subscription service. I would suggest visiting the store and downloading Google Maps and use it, if it isn't already installed.

I have accessed the navagation/compass window on my android. It tells me how many miles/feet I am from destination. But I have seen another window on another phone that shows the GPS as a directional view from destination, like how many feet, in which direction, etc. I still wish I could access that format. Guess it's not meant to be, chuckle. The machine is smarter than I am!

Do you know what app they were using?
