Use the Location button in the bottom right corner to center the map on your current physical location, turn the map in the direction you're facing, and display the compass.
The first tap centers the map on your current physical location.
The second tap rotates the map in the direction you're facing and displays the compass in the upper right corner. The blue sight cone in front of the location dot is the direction you are facing. The map will follow you as you travel.
The third tap turns the map back to North-up and removes the compass and sight cone.
