My Places lets your Galaxy Note 3 recognise your location to provide relevant information and services. Add places using Maps, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to recognise locations. From the Home screen touch Menu  > Settings  > Connections  > Location services  > My places.


1.    Touch to add a new place or select from one of the three predefined places: HomeOffice or Car.


2.    Name the place. If you selected Home, Office or Car in Step 1 then you cannot rename the location.




3.    Touch Select method and select the feature you want to use to define this location. Choose Map to use GPS information to define this location. Choose Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to define this location by its connection to a Wi-Fi access point or Bluetooth device. Touch OK.



4.    Follow the steps for each method. When selecting Bluetooth you will be asked to select the device from a list of available devices. When selecting Wi-Fi you will be asked to select the Wi-Fi access point. When selecting Maps you will need to search your location to use the current GPS co-ordinates.


Note: turn on the necessary service (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or location services) before trying to add a location to My Places.
