The problem is old and well known to everyone. I will catch and add examples. Dump agents who have examples in the comments, please.
Likely check the original post in the archived App Feedback section. I still see the drift from time to time, but gave up reporting it, as it never seems to get addressed. If anything now, drifting adds to your kinetic capsule & is quite entertaining.
I have the opposite issue, my GPS is too accurate.
@DestroyerTJ if you use another app, which shows the error calculated based on available satellites. And show Niantic that screenshot it will help.
I already have ages ago, for where my GPS accuracy in open air, with no buildings, trees etc nearby, and get an accuracy error of less than 1 metre
In the CBD today, indoors, accuracy was less than 8m
+ 2 videos
@DestroyerTJ unfortunately, from my point of view I cannot tell what the status is of your GPS error/accuracy
This is in my backyard, with nearby houses and trees.
Just trying to help you to provide Niantic with more data of what is exactly happening
Not bad on my new Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra but i feel GPS or more more precisely on my old Samsung Galaxy S10+ with Exynos and android 11. I know when Niantic update Ingress Prime it works mutch better but also when my Samsung Galaxy get update. Not only update my Samsung Galaxy with software update dont work.
Haha, I know agents who have completed 160 kinetic capsules since the introduction. With only several of them actually "walked".
I myself had huge problems with iPhone 8+ and drift. Eventually Apple stated that GPS was better on older devices; haha. My new iPhone 12 Pro Max has almost no drift.
