Do I need to be physically standing in the right place before I can activate?

No, you can actually activate in advance of playing if you'd like to test things out before you leave.

We actually recommend that you download your tour (press "Load" on the tour screen within the app) before leaving your house. This will give the tour a chance to begin downloading while you have full service / Wi-Fi. That way, all facts and images will be ready once you begin playing.
