The FindPenguins Travel Tracker is not a tracker that records a point every second or every meter. The reasons are as follows:
A tracker that works with the accuracy of known activity trackers (e.g. for running and cycling) would use up the battery of the phone / tablet completely in 6-12 hours. The FindPenguins Travel Tracker, on the other hand, only consumes approx. 4% extra battery power per day!
App does not have to be open
A tracker with increased accuracy only works when the app is open. The FindPenguins Travel Tracker, however, works even when the app is completely closed.
Performance on longer trips
Tracking to the second would generate large amounts of data after just a few days. Viewers of trips should therefore expect increased data transfer and longer waiting times. Trips & journeys of several weeks would push phones to their technical limits!
Inaccurate waypoints are possible
Due to the above-mentioned facts, it can happen that waypoints are somewhat inaccurate or that fewer waypoints are recorded. This can be corrected as follows:
