@tomhughes I think it's better, but not yet perfect. As far as I see it, the original text could be interpreted by a user as:

* Where am I (currently looking at)?
* Where am I (currently located)?

Both of these are solid interpretations, since we already have specific UI for both tasks. As you say, the 'this' in the new text is still open to interpretation, e.g.

* Where is this (map currently positioned)?
* Where is this (??? something else ???)?

I don't have a clear idea of what the second option could be, but if anyone has suggestions then that would be useful. But I like it since it's not so easily confused with the geolocation button.

I think a future improvement would be to move it out of the search field and make it more obviously associated with the map.
