How to record Lat and Lon of the Ipad in a Filemaker Go dBase?

I have Filemaker 12, and I'm creating a little dBase for recording the pilot and aircraft flight hours for UAV's (Drones).


One thing I have to record as well as times, and batteries used and purpose of the flight is the Latitude and longitude coordinates. As the UAV requires the iPad to operate (and thus the iPad is always present for every flight) it makes sense to record the lat/lon by using the coordinates of the iPad.


It's a cellular iPad (mini 4).


I envisage a wee script and button on the Filemaker Go main page to force the entry of the lat/lon in a field in the flight record.


Can anyone help/point me in the right direction?
