    It would help if you could supply a bit more info, ie: -
    Which model of Xplore do you have?
    What operating system does it run (Windows 8, 8.1, 10 etc)?
    Does the Xplore have a built-in GPS receiver?

    There are several Windows mapping programs that can plot your location using either a built-in GPS or data from an external Blutooth GPS unit, here is one :-

    It might be worth trying out a free to download program I don't think your Xplore has built-in GPS, but the program may be able to help you determin that

    I had Infomap Navigator 4, which is an earlier version (latest version HERE), but I haven't downloaded this version
