Land iD isn't locating me or recording tracks accurately. How to adjust location settings. [Android]

  • Updated

If Land iD Tracking is unable to locate your current position, or are encountering spikes or jumps in recording tracks, you may need to allow the app full access to your device's location services and adjust your battery settings. Adjusting the following settings on your device will enable Land iD to locate you and can also improve accuracy.

1. When installing Land iD you will be prompted to allow location services. 

Upon installation of the app you will be prompted to allow location services and this is the first step when wanting accurate data for your tracking feature. Having this set to "While using the app" is a first step. (This can be redone upon a fresh uninstall and reinstall)
