There is an option in our app to increase the accuracy of tracking:
- In the top left corner of the “Feed” screen of our app, you will find a Travel Tracker icon. Tap it, to open the Travel Tracker screen.
- There you will find a settings icon in the top right corner, opening a menu.
- Activate the switch next to “Higher accuracy”
The “Higher accuracy” mode searches for your location more frequently, actively using your device’s GPS receiver. It detects waypoints more reliably and reduces any possible deviation. This more active tracking consumes more battery power.
Note: Even when the “Higher accuracy” mode is enabled, our travel tracker only records waypoints that are at least 400 to 500 meters apart.
Important for iOS users:
The increased accuracy of the tracker only works when the FindPenguins app is open or in the background. When the app is closed, active tracking stops. However, the battery-saving background tracking continues.
