Before describing the functionality of the app is important to know that:

  • The localization can be done either with GPS that even with a Wi-Fi connection and a radio access
  • If you use the GPS consume a lot of battery but you'll have a precise location (a few meters)
  • If you do not use the GPS and only the radio access (with or without wifi access) have an accuracy ranging from 100 to over 1000 meters. The accuracy will be higher in urban areas while much less accurate in rural areas
  • The presence of WiFi networks in the area where you are helping to make a more precise localization. Let active in the mobile sensor wifi.
  • The advantage of not using the GPS is that the battery consumption is minimal.

 If you do not need a lot of precision use Geo Notes with GPS OFF
