Preposition question

Why is it "*por* dónde estaremos" instead of "dónde estaremos" in the sample question?

Hola R,

In this sentence you are referring to:

Mi navegador está roto; ¿por dónde estaremos?

My sat nav is broken; whereabouts might we be?

We could have said ¿dónde estaremos?

Adding "por" would add that nuance of "whereabouts", as in, not exactly where but "around where" (aproximately where).

Saludos

Inma
