    I only see two icons that aren't in your notification bar. The red and white one tells you which way north is (red always points to it), and the small gray one, IIRC, will late your location (or approximation if your GPS is turned off). Do if you're just song around the map and feel the need to quickly return to "where you are", just tap that small, gray one.
