How accurate is's location tracking?

Our Location SDK guarantees at least a 100% increase in accuracy compared to native location tracking, but depending on certain factors that accuracy can go down to 5 meters when moving, and even 1 meter for a single one-time location update.

Mobile location accuracy can be influenced by several factors, including the type of device, the quality of the GPS signal, and environmental factors such as buildings, trees, and other obstructions. Other factors that can affect location accuracy include the presence of other wireless signals, such as Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and the accuracy of the cellular network in the area.

The type of device being used can also impact location accuracy, with newer devices often having more advanced GPS technology that can provide more precise location data. Additionally, the quality of the GPS signal can be affected by the device's location and whether it is indoors or outdoors. In general, GPS signals are stronger outdoors and weaker indoors, which can lead to less accurate location data.

Environmental factors such as buildings and other obstructions can also interfere with GPS signals, making it harder for devices to accurately determine their location. This can be especially true in urban areas with tall buildings or other structures that can block or reflect GPS signals. Similarly, other wireless signals in the area can also impact location accuracy, as these signals can interfere with GPS signals and make it more difficult for devices to accurately determine their location.

Therefore, assuming those factors are optimal, the accuracy will be greatly increased. But, the purpose of building our Location SDK was also to greatly improve the location accuracy of older devices, as those are usually the ones with very low level location accuracy.
