Steps to help ensure your phone app has accurate GPS locations


When using the Rappt.IO phone app, you will need to follow these steps to minimise GPS locations being incorrect.

Please read the following link which explains GPS accuracy and why sometimes the GPS coordinates are not where you expect them to be.

General notes on phone GPS accuracy, what to expect, how to improve results.

 For android phones

The phone needs to have:

  1. The location services set to While in Use, or Always On (Android, iOS)
  2. Have battery optimisation turned off for the Rappt.IO app (Android.)

For recording tracks and using Line Walk features, failing to do use Always On will mean no tracks are not recorded when the app is in the background (i.e. in your pocket.)
