    search for an address

    Step 3: The system will record the new desired location. Click “Go” to teleport.

    Click on the Teleport icon

    2. Simulate movement along a specified route

    You can also use AnyGo to simulate GPS movement between two pre-determined locations:

    Step 1: Click on “Two-spot route” in the upper right corner. Select the place you would like to go to on the map. A popup will appear telling you how far it is.

    Drag the slider at the bottom to set the speed you would like to use. You can choose the “Realistic Mode” for a different speed to looks real. Besides, you can choose walking, cycling, or driving speed. Click “Go”.

    Two-spot route

    Step 2: In the popup box that appears, select how many times you would like to move between the two locations and then click “Go” to begin the simulated movement.

    begin the simulated movement

    3. Simulate movement along a route (set by multiple spots)

    If you would like to pass through many places on the map, choose the multi-stop route.

    Step 1: Select the multi-stop route in the upper right corner of the screen. Then select all the locations you want to pass through.

    Note: Make sure that the locations you set are along a specific route to avoid the movement appearing unnatural.

    A popup will appear showing how far you will travel. Select the moving speed and then click “Go”.

    select all the locations

    Step 2: Specify how many times you want to move along the selected path and locations and then click “Go” to start the simulated movement.

    start the simulated movement

    The GPS on your device will now be moving along the specified path, passing through all the selected points at the specified speed. If you want an authentic experience, you can choose the “Realistic Mode” for a natural speed.

    4. Jump teleport to any custom destinations directly

    Jump teleport mode can help you jump from one location to the next new location directly.

    Jump Manually

    Step 1: Open AnyGo and connect your iPhone, you can see your current location on the map. Click on the second button “Jump Teleport Mode”.

    Jump Automatically

    When you play the Pokemon Go game, we highly recommend you choose “Auto jump after Cooldown”.

    AnyGo jump automatically

    To avoid any bans from game, you should strictly follow the Pokemon Go Cooldown Chart when playing Pokemon Go. However, “Auto jump after Cooldown” can set the time automatically according to the distance, which is helpful for you.

    5. Use the Joystick for easier and more flexible GPS control

    The joystick feature in AnyGo can save you a lot of time and effort when controlling the GPS. You can find the joystick at the bottom left of the screen.

    In one-stop or multi-stop mode, the joystick is meant to help easily move your GPS from one point to another. But it goes one step further, allowing you to change direction in real-time.

    Joystick mode

    The following are the main situations in which the joystick will prove very useful:

    Automatic GPS Movement: To start an automatic movement, click on the “Start” button. You can then use the following actions to change direction as needed:

    • Click on the left or right arrow
    • Drag the spot around the circle
    • Press the A and D keys on the keyboard
    • Press left and right keys on the keyboard

    Manual GPS Movement: You can use the “Up” arrow in the program or long-press W or the up key on your keyboard to move forward. To reverse direction, use the “Down” arrow in the program or “S” or “Down” arrow on the keyboard.

    You can also easily change the direction using the 4 ways described above before moving forward or back.

    6. Import GPX routes file to autowalk

    GPX is used to exchange GPX location data with others, and we can use featured routes quickly and easily by importing GPX.

    Step 1. Click the GPX icon in the upper right corner of AnyGo.

    7. Spoof multiple iOS or Android devices GPS at the same time

    AnyGo can manage multiple iOS or Android devices at the same time, allowing you to change the location of all devices with just one click. We will use iPhone as an example.

    Step 1. Click the icon of “Manage Multiple devices” in the bottom right corner of AnyGo.

    Manage Multiple devices

    Step 2. Then, you will see a small window as below. To add a new device, click the “Add” button, connect the device to the computer, and wait for AnyGo to recognize it.

    Add devices

    Step 3. Then the interface will show all the connected devices with the “Controlled” or “Uncontrolled” status. The controlled status means the device is now in use of the virtual location, while the uncontrolled status means the opposite.

    To switch the status from “Controlled” to “Uncontrolled” or vice versa,  simply click the “Controlled” or “Uncontrolled” button.

    Control Multiple devices

    Step 4. Choose the device you want to operate and select a mode to spoof the location easily.

      • Dave Patterson Dave Patterson says:

        Hola Juan, muchas gracias por tu propuesta. Anygo actualmente no admite la conexión de varios dispositivos, pero he enviado sus comentarios al equipo de I + D. Lo admitiremos en varias versiones nuevas en el futuro.

      Hola acabo de adquirir una licencia, como cambio mi ubicación de mi pc? al parecer creo el programa solo funciona para iPhone pero cuando la compre mencionaba que mi licencia funcionaba en 5 dispositivos y una pc

      • iToolab iToolab says:

        AnyGo is suitable for changing your iPhone location. The license you got is 5 iOS devices, and the program can only be registered on 1 PC.

    • Avatar Caroline says:

      It’s really a Great tool. But every time i start the program, it puts me in a pretty war away location. If i ask it to show me my current location, it show’s the right one.
      So how can I make the program start at my location?

    • Avatar Mike says:

      Once I spoof my iPhone location (find my iPhone /share Location) if I disconnect and close my laptop will the location on iPhone revert back to normal ? Or will it stay at the spoof location until I again connect the iPhone and use the windows software etc.

      • iToolab iToolab says:

        The virtual location will be retained after you disconnect, but not permanently. This is related to your iOS version. Generally, you can keep it for a few days without resetting the location.
        If you want to return to normal, you can restart the device or connect to AnyGo and click “reset location”

    • Avatar Jim says:

      Hi guys,

      I would like to set a location, then switch off location settings, take the phone with me to another location but still have it showing that I’m at the original location, if that makes sense.

      Is it possible? Thanks and kind regards.

    • Avatar Sonya Phillips says:

      Hi! is there a way to change your location on the go without connecting the iphone to the laptop? for example i have set it to a location then i want to move it again to a different location after like 30 minutes? Let me know asap!
      thanks 🙂

    • Avatar Diego says:

      Can any go change location for Mac? Dose it work for locations in China?

    • Avatar Pedro says:

      Hi guys,

      Thanks for the product. I want to set a location, then drive to another location (2 or 3 hour drive). What is the best way to manage the connection so it doesn’t change en-route? I wish for the spoofed location to always show. Or is that not possible?

      Then, if I am at the second location and leave it connected to the first location through laptop and cable, will it always show the location I am spoofing to?

      Thank you

      • iToolab iToolab says:

        Hi Pedro,
        After you set a virtual location. It will stay in that virtual location all the time. Unless you restart your phone or reset your location with AnyGo.

    • Avatar Joe says:

      Feature request:

      Sort of a hybrid two-point and multi-point mode. Being able to select multiple points that are routed like two-point mode, so that the route is on paths/roads. Maybe a checkbox on “multipoint” that says “route on paths/roads” or something like that. I may have missed this feature in my rapid read of the docs.

      Neat tool regardless.
