    displaying a first virtual view in a second user equipment generated based on the current geographic location and the bearing information for the first user equipment;

    displaying at the second user equipment a second guidance marker used for navigational assistance;

    displaying at the first user equipment a first guidance marker used for navigational assistance at a first location wherein the first location is defined remotely at the second user equipment in the first virtual view and the location of the first guidance marker is determined by translating the second guidance marker coordinates into the first virtual view;

    displaying at the second user equipment a current geographic location for the first user equipment;

    accepting at the second user equipment an input, wherein the user input selects an adjustment made to the second guidance marker from a first position to a second position, wherein the second position is selected by the user input to be indicative of a target geographic location in a first virtual view of the current geographic location of the first user equipment as displayed on the second user equipment; and

    in response to the adjusting, displaying at the first user equipment the first guidance marker at the target geographic location in a second virtual view of the current geographic location, wherein the first guidance marker displayed at the target geographic location in the second virtual view provides navigation guidance to the first user for navigating to the target geographic location based on the user input selecting the adjustment made to the second guidance marker from the first position to the second position.
