Trakbond app shows inaccurate location when the device is indoors?

The GPS positioning accuracy is degraded by many factors such as satellite signal blockage because of buildings, trees, bridges, indoor, basement, etc. In order to show accurate location Trakbond device needs to receive GPS signals from at-least 4 satellites. But when the device is indoors (inside home, school, etc.), the device may not receive signal from any GPS satellites. In such cases, you might see slightly inaccurate location when the device is not receiving GPS signal.

If Trakbond app is showing location using LBS, "Mobile Tower" symbol will be displayed on Top-Right corner of profile icon in the app as shown in the above image.  if LBS Positioning is enabled, it can be disabled in mobile app from My Account > SETTINGS > LBS Positioning.
