Troubleshooting for your GPS

Troubleshooting for your GPS

If you're experiencing location accuracy issues that you believe are related to your GPS, please use the following steps to troubleshoot.

Compatible Device

GPS accuracy largely depends on the device you're using, so make sure the device is compatible with the app. To check, simply search for DEFY: Join the Revolution! on the App Store or Play Store using the same device.

Many tablets do not contain built in GPS sensors so please take this into account.

Signal Strength

To ensure a stable GPS signal, make sure you have a strong internet connection via cellular or Wi-Fi. However, please note that a strong Wi-Fi signal or cellular data (i.e. having full bars) is not always sufficient to guarantee a stable connection.

When possible, try switching between Wi-Fi and cellular data to see if your GPS accuracy improves.

Playing in urban areas

Tall buildings in urban areas may significantly reduce the GPS signal received by devices, causing a degraded signal due to poor visibility of the horizon and GPS signal refraction caused by windows on taller buildings.
