Activate the toogle to move the marker on the map.

When activating the toogle the “Show marker?” toogle will be activated for you, if it is not already active.

The marker will move to the center of the visible map and will be fixed there while you can pan and zoom as described above.

When you are happy with the location of the marker deactivate the toogle. The marker will stay at its current position on the map and you can pan and zoom the map without moving the marker.

“Show marker?” toogle

When enabling the toogle the marker is shown on the map. Otherwise no marker is shown on the map.

Even when the marker is not shown the previous location is saved.
