How do I get rid of this icon? Start 42

Start 42

On one way or another I managed to get this icon on my TomTomDrive:

There is no delete-option, but I don't want it no longer :joy:

How can I delete it?

regards

    Hi

    Well spotted Niall... I'd forgotten about the web location 'You are here' Icon
    I turned mine off years ago when the MyDrive Web Route planner decided that I lived in a different town 30 + Miles away, according to Google Street view its a smallish brick building at the end of a Cul-de-sac :relaxed:
    I guess its where my Internet provider keep their Servers/Internet connection

    I wondered how he did turn it off, but YamFazMan remains silent ??

    And - being a mod on a Dutch computerforum - I know that there should be a solution, because in FF I have this icon, but in Edge ... I don' t have it :

    Mayby I have to look at my settins or my cookies...

    (or should YamFazMan remember how he got lost of it..?)

    Hi

    When you first fire up the MyDrive Web Route planner a small window opens and asks permission to use your present location (Geolocation)

    Geolocation Wikipedia... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geolocation

    Prevent websites from tracking your location, by disabling Geolocation in your browser

    YamFazMan,

    that dit it !

    followed the second link - but that wasn't enough: all the dedection was already enablad...
    But it set me on the wright path: under Options - protection against following - is a link to 'more info to the protection...' and I followed the link and found this image:
    85753d5d-c6ff-4700-bc03-9f4fbfa23b8d.jpg

    So I came to the little shield-icon and there I could enable the protection against following.

    Thank you !

    Gilbert
