How to place the GPS locator in Sons of the Forest

The GPS locator can not be placed on the ground or on a tree. Instead, you need to put it on top of a stick. What you need to do is open your inventory and equip a stick. Then, look toward the ground until you see some options pop up on your screen, and left-click to switch between them. When you see a small white circle, right-click to put the stick on the ground.

The next step is to open your inventory and equip the GPS locator. This can be found inside the briefcase located on the top left side of your inventory. With the GPS locator in your hand, hover over the stick to place it on the top. Now, open your map, and you’ll be able to see the GPS locator on it. If you wish to remove it and take it to another spot, you need to get near the stick and press “C.” This will add the GPS locator back into your inventory, and you can use it to mark another important location.
