When the Jiobit is not in one of your defined Trusted Places, you will see the best estimate of your child’s location represented by a location pin icon.
At times, this estimate may be slightly off. Therefore, an accuracy circle may be added around this location pin to represent the area your child could be currently located. You probably have seen something similar when using other mapping apps on your phone.
While the bullseye target is the highest confidence estimate on the location, the accuracy circle may grow and shrink, indicating an additional buffer of the location. A number of factors influence this estimate, but Jiobit will attempt to provide the most accurate location possible, even if the Jiobit is indoors.
Jiobit will automatically detect if your child is outdoors or near windows when indoors. When this happens, you can expect to see a more accurate location and a smaller accuracy circle. When indoors or in larger buildings, you may see a slightly less accurate representation of their location on the map. Accuracy indoors is dependent on the number of Wi-Fi access points in that location. If there are a large number of access points, the location will be more accurate.
If you would like to see your current location in relation to the Jiobit, press the navigation arrow in the lower right corner of the card and this will open your phone’s default mapping application. Additionally, you can place the Jiobit into Live Mode, which will show both your and your Jiobit’s real-time location.
❗️IMPORTANT: Exiting Jiobit App and using your phone's default mapping app
When you enter your phone’s default mapping app from the Jiobit app, your default mapping app will use the last known location of your Jiobit from when you exited the Jiobit App. Your default mapping app does not refresh the location of the Jiobit but rather treats it as a stationary destination. If you would like a real-time stream of both you and your Jiobit’s location, you need to use Live Mode.
