Note: By default, the Geo-coding process batch Size will be 5000. The number of locations for which the latitude and longitude is processed depends on the batch size.

One Geo-coding process will create a maximum of 10 Sub-Process. If you have more than 50k addresses then, the Geo-coding process needs to be submitted multiple times accordingly.
It is a better practice to schedule the Process in specific intervals to process the New Addresses.

3. Enable GPS.

Once the process is scheduled, you are all set to identify all the Accounts/ Opportunities/Contacts near you. But you need to make sure the GPS /Location services is activated in your mobile device otherwise this functionality will not work.
