On my computer it shows, on an iPhone it doesn’t. Some people have a list of their cars and location at the bottom of their post, that shows up in both formats for me.
Martin, there is something called "responsive design" where web pages adapt based on the attributes of the target device. If the device has limits like a small screen, then things get rearranged or hidden to keep the user experience as good as possible.

I just tested it on my iPhone and you are right...but only in portrait mode. (There isn't enough screen width for the sidebar to show that info.) Rotate your iPhone to landscape mode and it will re-render the page and show all the information! Isn't technology wonderful and maddening at the same time?

Michael

I always thought Vic deserved portrait mode, but regardless, on my Iphone SE 2020 landscape mode does not bring his location up. And I thought my phone was quite up to date in spite of not costing $1000.

Martin, the SE 2020 is the smaller form factor of the iPhone (4.7" screen) compared to models like my 11 Max Pro (6.4"). The software is shedding content so your screen isn't cluttered; on my larger screen it shows the info. This is expected behavior.

So you are saying in deference to Vic I need a larger phone. I get it.
