Hi there Robert and welcome

Please do not shoot the messenger but the Kindle has no GPS module. This is something such as a smartphone has that communicates with GPS satellites in order to locate its position.

Without this, it has not way to know where it is, this is why it is not possible with the Kindle.

I am really sorry about this and If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Thank you
