Locate your friends and family from your iPad
The Find My Friends app is a great way to find people who are important to you and share your location with them. Friends and family members who use iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Apple Watch Series 3 and later and share their locations with you appear on a map, so you can quickly see where they are. You can set notifications to alert you when friends or family members leave from or arrive at various locations.
