PSA on GPS Inaccuracy for certain phones


#1

Some of you might have issues with GPS tracking on certain phones. My fiancé and I both use Blu Vivo X devices, and up until today, we’ve had significant challenges with GPS accurately tracking our locations, namely having to wait between 10 seconds to 5 minutes for our positions to update. And even when it does, we often have a variance of being where we are physically standing…or being up to 100m away. More, in specific locations.

Well, we tried something counter-intuitive, and it worked. What did we do?

Turned off High Accuracy Mode, enabling Device Only location tracking.

And surprise, it works. Just like other AR games such as Pokémon Go, it now accurately follows our walking. If this has been an issue for you, try our fix, and if it works, feel free to chime in.
