I have pushed “share my location” and added my son’s name.  He has done the same and I can see his icon on google maps if I scroll around the screen to find him.  There must be an easier way to find him rather than scroll around the screen as he could be way over in another state.  How can I search for him on google maps??

Tap the account button (your photo in upper right) choose location sharing. You should see your son’s name there. Tap it to see his location.

Thank you!  I should have asked for help a long time ago as it would have saved me time scrolling and scrolling to find his icon.  That’s rather a hidden feature.  At least it was for me!  Thanks again.
