    The Myth of Spoofing Your Location via GPS

    You are only spoofing yourself. Three years ago, a paper was released by a team of researchers from Stanford's Computer Science department demonstrating how it was possible to track cell phone location with more accuracy and precision than by using GPS or WiFi connectivity. It's done by...

    GPS given wrong address for a ride?

    Accepted a ride, in Chicago where there are lots of drivers of course. GPS said I was (roughly) 5 miles and 20 minutes away. That did not make sense to get a ride so far a way, so I called the pax to ask if they wanted to wait for me or not. It did not make sense to them either, their app...

    Position of GPS person figure wrong side of street

    Sanity check. Have you seen this? The little person figure in Google Maps shows on my left but they are on the right (side of the street). They cross the street to me and now the figure is on the other side where they came from. It affected smooth pickup on the busy, one way, 3 lane street...

    Uber / Lyft App GPS issues

    Last night was super busy in DT Naperville. There were few events in DT and lots of people on the streets.
