My friends cannot find me (LOL, this is an iOS question)

So I share location with wife and vice versa. Works great to see if she left grocery store or not, if she did not, I can call and ask her to add one item to the cart, if she left already it is not worth it to go back. Stuff like that.

this worked fine for a while, but then at some point she cannot see my location. on my iPhone, I have location services enabled, and in iOS Maps I can see my location just fine, but when I go to "Find Friends" it says my location is not available. I tried to turn location services OFF and back ON, didn't help. I was eventually planning to log out of iCloud and back in, but I put that on hold for a while. Then on Friday in iMessages I got the option to share location with her. I did, and it worked fine on Friday and Saturday, but today guess what, it does not work again. In Find Friends it says my location is not available for some reason.

Do you have another iOS device (iPad)?

Press on "Me" and make sure that "Share My Location" is enabled and "Share My Location From:" is selected to the desired device.

This... when we set up mrs. cbelt3's new iPad, it took over the 'share location' setting. Thanks, iCloud. It took me a while to figure out.

did that. I have an older iPhone and an iPad, those stay home, and share my location is selected from my current iPhone SE which I carry with me.

puhleze.

When things were simpler... but now everything is 10X more complicated -- which means we all have to be 10X smarter.

there are 13 devices in my "find my iphone" app. 3 ipads, 2 watches, 1 ipod, 4 macs and 3 iphones. Plus iCloud. One simple tap of making one something else, or not giving it the right permissions = borked.

PEBKAC...
