Current location accuracy depends on the availability of location data. If your device is receiving location data from your cell ID rather than GPS or Wi-Fi, accuracy may be off by as much as several thousand meters. For this reason, your current location feature may not work properly. If your phone is not locating you within several meters of accuracy, you may want to contact your cellphone carrier to resolve this issue before using the CSUN map feature.


CSUN map directions default to driving. If you would like to retrieve walking directions, select the walking person icon located in the navigation bar at the top of the screen.
