Functions

Using this Siri Shortcut is a breeze: you literally have to tap only one button (or none, if you trigger it by a Siri request) to get the ISS position. When you run this Shortcut you should wait some seconds and, when you iPhone (or iPad or iPod touch) gets all the data it needs, it displays its position on a map. It's that easy.

You can choose the maps service to use after you've downloaded it, by the way. If you want to, you have to open the Shortcut and scroll down to the bottom of the page, where you'll find the "Show in Maps"-function. If you have any other supported service (such as Google Maps), you can pick it by tapping on its name.

So, as you may have seen, this Shortcut is very user-friendly and I hope you'll love it. Have fun!
