6. Your current location will appear under Address. Touch 2 to search for your location again. Touch Other detection methods to define your location using a Wi-Fi network or Bluetooth address.


7. Follow the steps for the method you choose. When using Maps, you will need to search for your location or use the current GPS coordinates. When using Wi-Fi, you will be asked to select the Wi-Fi access point. When using the Bluetooth feature, you will be asked to select the device from a list of available devices.

8. Touch NEXT.


9. Touch MANAGE to manage shortcuts to functions and applications that are useful in this place, or touch OK to continue.
