Mobile phones have different methods of capturing locations.

Common sources of location information include Global Positioning System (GPS) and location inferred from network signals. This could be your 3G/4G signal or WiFi connection too. 

In general mobile phones use a combination of these but in some occasions, it could happen that in-accurate locations are captured.

So what can you do?

Although the system is not 100%  failure proof and some inaccuracies could occur, there are some steps that you can take to ensure the best location:

  1. Always set your phone's accuracy to high accuracy, this way all possible methods of capturing location will be activated.

  2. Activate your GPS on your phone before Jibbling.

  3. Make sure you always have an internet connection when Jibbling! The networks around you will help triangulate your position.
