There is an option in our app to increase the tracking accuracy:
- In the top left corner of the Home screen 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.
- Select High accuracy.
The high-accuracy mode searches for your location more frequently, actively using your device’s GPS. It detects waypoints more reliably and reduces any possible deviation. This active tracking consumes significantly more battery power.
Even in high-accuracy mode, our travel tracker only records waypoints that are roughly 200 meters apart. FindPenguins is a long-term tracker; we intentionally do not provide more detailed tracking results.
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, high-accuracy tracking stops, but background tracking with low accuracy continues.
