Can not find GPS or del Component

It was suggested I try some of the examples in the following PDF: Android App Inventor UK - DIY - Rev.3d

Got stuck after I moved on to Chapter 6 "Find your address and send it to a friend".
The steps are a bit less hand-holding than the very first example but the think I got it figured out with the exception of finding a couple of components.
It was not clear where I could find the GPS component for placement in the project area.
I did manage to place a button and labeled it "Send Adresse" not sure but thought it should be spelled "Send Address".
Next, guessing again the text entry box which in the tutorial was labeled "TekstAdresse" not sure what that means but did drag a small icon from the components section, the icon looking like a capital A in what looks like a sheet of paper, to the project area.
I could not find the component Icon labeled "del" in the project area.
I can move forward once I can find where to get the GPS and del components shown in the pic for this example.

There is no GPS component; access to the GPS receiver is by using the LocationSensor. See

You did not provide the tutorial link so we can't be more specific in advice.

TekstAdresse is Danish or Norwegian for Text Address :slight_smile:

Thank you for clearing that up did not know and the example did not point out this fact. It only shows the GPS in the project area. BTW I am new to MIT App Inventor and trying to learn it from scratch. When I posted this before I was told to look into the PDF file to learn the basics. The name of that PDF is: Android App Inventor UK - DIY - Rev.3d and the example is in Chapter 5 Find your address and send it to a friend.
There was a link at the end of this example but it did not bring up the item the link pointed to. Here is that link: Download the app here:
The example video that was also linked was not in English could not glean what I needed while watching.

What you are using is an excerpt for a commercial book by T. Anderson. Others cannot access it unless they purchase the book.

You are new, so you do not know that the link to your Project cannot be accessed by anyone except you and (with your permission) MIT. If you want to share your blocks, you have to provide an image of the blocks and paste them here.

Rather than struggle with a tutorial in a language you do not understand, you might use the following advice and write you own app:

You can 'find your address' by using the LocationSensor , perhaps see HOW TO: Parse a LocationSensor's Current Address by SteveJG

You can send the CurrentAddress information obtained from a LocationSensor to send the address to someone by email (use the ActivityStarter) or as a Text message.

You are new, so the following resources should help you learn to use the AI2 tools. A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor's Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook ... the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book 'teaches' users how to program with AI2 blocks.

There is a free programming course here and the aia files for the projects in the book are here:

How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here: .

Also look here and here for more tutorials.

Thank you for taking the time to post all those links and help me out. I have a lot of reading to do and hopefully, it will be more productive than the last train wreck.
