5Why can my friend see me on his/her Share Location list, but I can't see him/her?

It most probably has to do with problems in mobile settings on your friend's device. His location data is not in sync on the internet, that is why you can't see him. Your location is in sync, that's why we can all see you! We surmise it is because he has not turned on location services on his mobile device. To turn on location services: open setting, click on "location services" in the functions list, make sure "location services" is on, find "Friend Locator" in the list below, and turn it on.

6Why can't I see my own location?

It might be because your mobile location services have not been turned on. To turn on location services: open setting, click on "location services" in the functions list, make sure "location services" is on, find "Friend Locator" in the list below, and turn it on.
