    Question to start a sentence with ...ing

    Hi. I usually have problems with sentences that start with ...ing word. I Know it's possible but I never know how it works.
    I'm not sure if this sentence is correct: "Providing the immediate location and name of the street where the car is."
    Thanks

    As it is, your sentence is incomplete. What is providing this information? If you cannot reverse the sentence, then it is incorrect.

    Providing information about the location of the car, the GPS also gives the name of the street.

    [The GPS gives the name of the street while providing information about the location of the car]

    Looking at the screen, we could see where is was parked.
