Re: Why is the browser GPS navigator.geolocation function not accurate?

I'll talk to the Browser team to see if there are any known issues for GPS or some other type of trick to get it to have high accuracy.

 

GPS is built right into the browser, so any kind of Fix would require an OS upgrade.. and that means that the fix would likely only make it into BB7 devices.

 

I'm sure there must be some kind of flag that needs to be set in order to get the accurate readings without having to do your own extension.  I'll talk with them today.

Tim,

Thanks for responding Smiley Happy

Having just been at Salesforce Cloudforce (in my daytime job) in London, we understand how difficult it is to support this kind of flexibility. I am happy to test any fixes you can provide - will follow your tweets.
