The speed recorded by the app is only as good as the phone’s GPS. This means that the speed the app records may not always be 100% accurate. It will be more accurate if:
- You have a newer phone. GPS technology is continuing to improve with every phone version and is therefore are better at recognizing your location and velocity.
- You are outdoors. Being inside a building (ie, an indoor arena) or in a deeply wooded area can affect the accuracy of the GPS monitoring.
- You are in an area with good signal. This will improve the ability of GPS to decipher your location and velocity.
