The easiest way to start FindMePro is to add its icon to your home screen. You could also save a bookmark in your browser.
Modern browsers provide a way for web pages like this one to obtain your location in the form of:
• Latitude longitude coordinates
• Accuracy in meters
If a circle is drawn centered at a coordinate and with the accuracy value as the radius, then there is supposed to be 95% likelihood that the user is inside that circle.
Be cautious in using any app that displays your coordinates or location but does not also tell you the accuracy value
for those coordinates. If the accuracy value is huge but not displayed, then what practical good are the coordinates?
Using the default settings, FindMePro will collect data for 30 seconds or until the accuracy value for the current (i.e. not cached) coordinates is 5 meters or less three times in a row. You can then display that data on a map.
Your browser determines your location based on a variety of factors that might include the GPS chip in your phone or tablet, cell towers, wi-fi hotspots, bluetooth and perhaps other technologies.
If you hold your phone so your hand covers the GPS antenna then your phone will not get any data from the GPS satellites. Hold your phone in portrait orientation with nothing blocking the upper half of the phone.
Using FindMePro you can find out if different combinations of settings on your phone affect the accuracy of the location coordinates your browser produces.
can try running this app with and without cell service, wi-fi and bluetooth turned on.
can vary the same settings as iOS users and also try changing the location method (or mode)
among the three settings which are: High accuracy, Power saving and GPS (or Device) only. Choosing "GPS only" will likely produce the most accurate coordinates. Choosing "High accuracy" (with wi-fi, bluetooth and cell service 'on') might actually decrease the accuracy of the coordinates. Choosing "Power saving" will likely produce coordinates with very poor accuracy
particularly in areas where there is limited cell coverage.
If you run FindMePro while you are someplace that you can identify on the Google aerial, then when you look at your results on the map you will be able to see how well the results show your true location. The last three locations returned are green circles on the map
. Those three circles might be on top of each other and just look like one circle. The last location returned has a green paddle at the center of its circle. Look to see if the green circles include your location.
You can also compare the accuracy of the coordinates you get if you ask for just one coordinate or ask for a stream of coordinates.
By using this software you agree that you are doing so entirely at your own risk. You further agree that you will not file any lawsuit or make any kind of claim against the developer of this software.
This software does not retain your location data and does not share your location data with anyone.
