  1. Hi there.
    Thanks for the article, very helpful.
    Though got an issue when adding “myLocationEnabled: true” the location button doesnt show up. Logs comes up with “cannot enable mylocation layer as location permissions are not granted”. Required user permissions have been added to the manifest and requested from main.dart file.

    Thank you for any help.

  2. Hello Joe, Thanks for reading the article. Please check the below section
    Adding Google Maps to Flutter app (Android)
    Adding Google Maps to Flutter (iOS)
    This should fix your problem.

  3. Hello Joe, I had the same problem and I solved it by entering the configuration of my emulator in the location application permissions section and enable the location permission for my application in flutter as you would with a physical device

  4. Had the same issue – could not see the “my location button” and as Abraham Duarte said – go to phone settings and – Permissions – Location permission and enable for your app

  5. I had the same issue with the “My Location” button not showing. I found out that with me this is due to that in the current latest version 2.2, it’s required to set not one but two parameters:

    myLocationEnabled: true,
    myLocationButtonEnabled: true, // this seems new

    Thanks for the article, very helpful!

  6. Thanks for sharing, this helped me understand it easily. I didn’t want to just copypasta youtube videos, though it would work…I love the way you layered it step by step and explained everything on the way.
