Help with OSM and SimpleMDM

Hi I need help understanding how to install and use OpenStreetMap with the SimpleMDM software in order to track our company’s devices. The MDM allows us to only have the exact pinpoint location of our devices, but we are unable to copy and/or paste the given coordinates. All I know is that in the corner of the map is says © OpenStreetMap so I thought that there is a way I can use the website to search it. My boss doesn’t want to handwrite the coordinates so please please help me to see if this is even feasible so he does not get upset.

The “OpenStreetMap” in the corner only means that a website uses OpenStreetMap data in some way. OSM is not affiliated with most websites that use its data, and therefore has no control over them.
If I’ve understood you correctly, there’s not much we can help you with, sorry.


(nothing to do with OSM, but)

Their API call suggests latitude and longitude could be obtained for a device (under some circumstances). Once you get that, you can do what you like with that data.
