Location-Based Services

New with Kindle Fire HD is a location-based feature that enables the device to know where you are in the world. This is useful for some apps and Kindle Fire HD features that need to know where you are in order to provide information or services such as weather or local traffic reports.

When an app or website is using your location information, you’ll see an icon that looks like a cross in a circle in the upper-right corner of the screen near your battery life icon.

To turn location-based services on or off, in Settings, tap Location-Based Services and then tap the On/Off button.
