Factors Affecting GPS Accuracy

The environmental context and the frequency of communication with GPS satellites play a crucial role in the accuracy of location data provided by your Weenect tracker. Understanding these factors is essential to optimize the use of your device.


The Influence of the Environment on GPS Localization

The environment in which your Weenect tracker is located directly influences the quality of GPS localization. In dense urban environments, tall buildings can refract GPS signals, reducing accuracy. In forests, trees can obstruct signals. Similarly, adverse weather conditions or intense solar activity can disrupt GPS signal reception. Inside buildings, especially in places like basements, the tracker may struggle to capture signals, leading to significant inaccuracies.


The Importance of GPS Interval for Better Accuracy

The second determining factor for tracker accuracy is the frequency at which it sends its position. A high frequency, such as sending every 30 seconds, ensures better accuracy compared to less frequent sending. This allows the tracker to maintain regular contact with satellites, thus optimizing localization. However, a shorter interval between GPS transmissions can reduce battery life. Therefore, it is crucial to find a right balance. A compromise might be the use of a transmission frequency every 5 minutes, with the possibility to activate the super live mode in case of urgent need for localization.



The accuracy of the GPS localization of your Weenect tracker is influenced by the environment and the frequency of GPS transmissions. A deep understanding of these elements will allow you to maximize the effectiveness and reliability of your tracker.
