Hello,

Why the locations sometimes we sent to others are wrong? Yesterday, my cousin sent me a location which is present behind the mosque (a sacred place where Muslims offer prayers) while it was showing in front of it.​​​​​​​

Hi,

Depending on the configuration of the device, location services are sometimes approximate and may not represent the exact location.

Hey there!

Sometimes, the locations we send to others can be a bit off. It could be due to various reasons like GPS signal issues, errors in mapping data, or even just plain old technological hiccups. So, when your cousin sent you the location, it might have shown up in the wrong spot, like behind the mosque instead of in front of it.

These location errors can be pretty annoying, but thankfully they don't happen all the time. Just remember to double-check the location or use additional landmarks to make sure you're heading in the right direction. Technology can be a bit finicky sometimes, but we'll get there!
