GPS coordinates

The app does not make effective use of GPS coordinates. There are many locations and businesses within close proximity to each other, or that use the same street address, which makes it very difficult to differentiate one map point from another. Or the end user may be physically located at one location, and the map shows no information for nearby stores; yet, the location may be in the database but at a different location due to using a street address rather than GPS coordinates. Therefore, it is suggested that GPS coordinates be added as an option to the app in order to make locations more precise. Hopefully, this will be possible in future updates, thereby, eliminating duplicate entry submissions.

Has there been any thought to this issue in the past? Thanks.

Hi Praxis,

We do use GPS coordinates, but sometimes google geolocation service returns the wrong coordinates for a specific address.

If there are locations that are not pinned properly, please use the Report Entry button to let us know so that we can fix it. Thanks!
