Our family of iphones use the Maps application when traveling and every single one of our phones can locate themselves while traveling in a car to a pinpoint location on Maps. It shows us to within feet of where we actually are. And we can watch our locations move in real time. The GPS works exquisitely well.
Then there is FamilyMap. When locating one of these same phones, it is usually within 400 yards to 4 miles. Every once in awhile it locates to an exact home or store location. About 1 out of 100 times. Mostly it is only to a neighborhood or to a part of town.
We have 4 iphones from 3S to 4S. We can all be in the car at the same time, and check our location on Maps to within feet. I can then track the four phones on FamilyMap and get only the neighborhood or the part of town.
Why exactly is that? The phone has the ability to be located on one application to within feet. But at the exact same time using another application, to only within a mile, at best. I don't understand this. Can someone explain?
