Location doesn't work inside Power BI Mobile

Hi, I have an app in Power Apps with a map object using the Bing connector. I embebbed it in a Power BI dashboard.

The problem comes when I access to the dashboard with Power BI Mobile (my OS is Android). Inside the app, I press a button that gets my current latitude and longitude through a variables, but the button doesn't update it. When I use it with Power BI service on my desktop PC, it works.

On the settings of my smartphone I allowed Power BI to get access to my location.


Someone had a similar problem and could solve it?


Thanks a lot!




do you know this documentation?

Filter a report by geographic location in the Power BI mobile apps

I do not yet understand your workflow between Power BI and Power App.


Could imagine, however, that the Power App Visual does not have the necessary rights in the Power BI Mobile App.

Hi @DevTaligent,


Did you get it working with only a Power BI dashboard, so without Power Apps?


Furthermore, an important limitation is that you can only filter by location in the mobile app if the geographic names in the report are in English.
