GPS tracking issues and inaccuracies (iOS)

If, as an iPhone user, you notice discrepancies in your recorded trips, you have likely been affected by a recent GPS inaccuracy problem. This issue can show up in different ways:

  • Inaccurate coordinates
  • Bee lines (straight lines, as the crow flies, etc.)
  • Not all trips being recorded
  • No automatic trips recorded even though your iBeacon is connected.

What you can do to ensure accurate tracking

  1. Go to your phone’s Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services
  2. Turn off Location Services 
  3. Restart your phone
  4. Turn on Location Services again.

While you are in your phone’s Settings, double-check that your settings are correct:

  1. Go to Settings -> Driversnote
  2. Make sure Location is on “Always” and Motion & Fitness is “On”.
