Cannot Move or Hack with Drone when Scanner has no location or location is inaccurate. You just get message "Location Inaccurate, cannot complete action".


It this a bug or intended feature?

Drone location is always known (unless Drone Recalled) so moving a Drone or hacking with Drone should be technically possible but of course Recall should be disabled if no location.

    That’s just the speed locking aspect, just like when hacking or doing other actions normally. Using the drone is just an extension of your scanner, so the same rules apply. If you’re going too fast to play normally, then you won’t be able to hack with the drone either. Not a bug.

  • Thanks for good comments, but in this case it was not the speedlock issue. Phone was just inside within thick walls and no good enough GPS or other location data were available.

    Turned off the Phone Location service from Phone Settings and you cannot even access Dronenet from Menu. It just shows message "GPS signal not found".

  • My drone has not worked since last summer 2020 and Niantic doesn't know how to fix it. This is so distressing because I have missed all the special drone hacks.
