Overview of MockGo:
Part 1. Teleport the GPS Location to Any Place
Step 1. Launch MockGo on your computer. Connect your iOS device to your computer and click "Start" to start changing the GPS location of your iPhone using MockGo.
Step 2. You'll see your current location on the map in the new window. If the location is not shown correctly, tap the "Center On" button in the lower right corner to adjust the correct location.
Step 3. Click the first icon in the upper right corner to enable "Teleport Mode". Enter the location address you want to teleport to in the search bar, and click the "Go" button to proceed.
Step 4. MockGo will then display the GPS location you entered on the map. In the popup window, click "Move Here". Your GPS location will be changed to your preferred location immediately.
You can go to the Map app on your iPhone to verify the new GPS location of your device.
Part 2. Simulate the One-stop Movement
MockGo also allows you to simulate the movement between two points along a route you choose. Here's how to do it:
Step 1. Select the corresponding icon (the second one) in the upper right corner to enter "One-stop mode".
Step 2. Choose a place on the map that you want to visit. Then, the distance between the 2 spots and the coordinate of the destination location will be shown in a popup box. Click “Move Here” to proceed.
Step 3. Input a number in the new popup box to specify how many times you want to switch between the two locations. Select the moving speed you want to set. Press "Start" to start the auto-walk.
Note: You can still adjust the speed during the movement according to your needs.
Step 4. Now you can see how your location on the map is changing with the speed you have chosen. You can pause the movement by clicking the “Pause” button to make the movement look more natural.
Part 3. Simulate the Multi-stop Movement
If you want to visit several locations along a path. the "multi-stop mode" is for you.
Step 1. In the upper right corner, select "Multi-stop mode" (the third option). Then you can pick and choose which spots you want to move through one by one.
To avoid the game developer thinking you're cheating, we suggest that you pick the spots along a real path.
Step 2. A popup box will display the distance you need to travel on the map. Select the speed you prefer, and click the "Move Here" button to proceed.
Step 3. Choose how many times you want to circle, then press "Start" to start the movement.
Step 4. Your location will then move along the route you defined. You can pause the movement or adjust the speed accordingly.
Part 4. Use Joystick to Get the Exact Location

Step 2. You can then change the direction by clicking the left or right arrows, moving the position around the circle, pressing keys A and D on the keyboard, or pressing keys Left and Right on the keyboard.
