How do I find the nearest masajid, school, restaurants ...etc?

How does 1UMMAH know my location to calculate the nearest masajid, school, restaurants ...etc?
1ummah uses the navigation system to locate your current location. But you need to “allow” this function to locate where you are. After you allow this function and when you type in your location and set your radius, google map will immediately give you the nearest results. If you increase your radius, the map will be able to provide a wider range of options for you, hence giving you the best results.
How do I find Iqama/Salah timing for the masjid I searched in 1UMMAH?
1UMMAH seeks to empower the Muslims with technology. Our aim is to build over 350 masajid websites. That means every masjid in Australia will have a full fledged website of their own. We will provide masjid administers coaching & training on how to maintain these websites. That way, the admins of the masjid will be updating the Iqamah times and will be more accurate and up to date. This is a slow but comprehensive process. But we, at 1UMMAH, believe in quality. You may not find the Iqamah times now for all masajid but in sha Allah when you will find they will be most accurate and up to date

Please explain to me the Sadaqa Jariyah concept in regards to 1UMMAH Market?
“If a man dies, then his good deeds stop except for three: a Sadaqah Jariah (continuous charity), a beneficial knowledge, or a righteous child who prays for him”. (Narrated by Muslim)
Since the money you spend on 1UMMAH market (www.1ummah.org.au/market) generates revenue for 1UMMAH and 1UMMAH is a nonprofit organisation which delivers beneficials products and services to Muslims, it is a Sadaqa Jariah (continuous charity) for you.
