Make sure each phone has all location services turned ON, including GPS and WiFi. Turning GPS on for your phone does not improve the accuracy of your Circle member's locations- they must turn this ON for their phone.
Turning on WiFi on your device dramatically improves location accuracy, even if you are not actively connected to a WiFi network.
Your device uses the WiFi sensor to detect nearby WiFi base stations and narrow your exact location based on that information. With WiFi turned on, your device can quickly locate you within the bounds of a building; but with WiFi turned off, your location accuracy can be off by more than a mile as your device needs to rely on less precise location inputs (e.g. the location of cell phone towers).Silkfred White Puff Sleeve Figl Shirt wnHv7Sq
Accuracy depends on many factors, such as your environment and your phone. At times, a highly accurate location won’t be available as some areas might have very poor signal or no signal at all.
Having the app open on your phone improves your location accuracy; when the Life360 app is running in the background, location accuracy will not be as high.
NOTE: CDMA cell carriers (including Verizon, Spring, and US Cellular) do not support internet while on a phone call. If your cell provider does not support internet while on a phone call, our system will not be able to update your movement, driving behaviors or detect a collision if you are on a phone call.
