Enabling Geolocation

By default, Kagi Maps uses your IP address to determine your approximate location and use it as the initial location of the map.

For a better experience while using Kagi Maps, we recommend sharing your geolocation with Kagi Maps. Your location will only be saved in your browser’s storage and will not be associated with your account. To do this, click or tap on the Geolocation button:

Kagi Maps - Geolocation Button

You will be presented with two options to set your location:

  1. The first one is to use your browser’s built-in geolocation function to automatically identify and share your real time location with Kagi Maps.
  2. You can also set your location manually by clicking the Set My Location Manually button.

If you opted to use your browser’s built-in geolocation, your browser might prompt you to give Kagi permission to detect your location, please click the Allow button:

If you chose the Set My Location Manually option, you will be able to drag the map so that the blue dot is positioned in your location, then click on Done.

Changing Kagi Maps Unit System

Kagi Maps allows you to change the unit system used for displaying distances. You can choose between metric units (kilometers and meters) or imperial units (miles and feet). To change the unit system, simply click on the scale bar at the bottom of the screen.

Clicking on the scale bar will toggle between metric and imperial units. The scale bar will update to reflect the selected unit system, and any distances shown in Kagi Maps, such as route lengths, will be displayed using the chosen units.

Changing the unit system can be helpful if you are more comfortable with a particular system or if you need to match the units used in other applications or documents.
