Wikivoyage are about to become a travel guide for any traveler, and I think the destination map needs to add a person's location (like a Google Map) to help travelers find the places they want to visit.

When will it be officially activated? This is very import about Wikivoyage.

@Yuriy_kosygin: Someone needs to volunteer to write a software change, which in theory anyone can do who is interested. You are very welcome to use developer access to submit the proposed code changes as a Git branch directly into Gerrit which makes it easier to review them quickly and provide feedback.

Because the mobile version of the page does not display the Geo icon, and some pages will display the Mapframe, so I think the Mapframe needs to add the function of Show me where I am; visitors can use the mobile phone to watching the map of the Wikivoyage when they in outdoors, and know which one they are in location and destination location. Can add the Show me where I am function of {{geo}} to {{Mapframe}}?
