About GPS

The coordinates in the GPS are expressed using the

international WGS-84 coordinate system. The

availability of the coordinates may vary by region.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is operated by the

government of the United States, which is solely

responsible for its accuracy and maintenance. The

accuracy of location data can be affected by

adjustments to GPS satellites made by the United

States government and is subject to change with the

United States Department of Defense civil GPS policy

and the Federal Radionavigation Plan. Accuracy can

also be affected by poor satellite geometry. Availability

and quality of GPS signals may be affected by your

location, buildings, natural obstacles, and weather

conditions. GPS signals may not be available inside

buildings or underground and may be impaired by

materials such as concrete and metal.
GPS should not be used for precise location

measurement, and you should never rely solely on

location data from the GPS receiver and cellular radio

networks for positioning or navigation.
The trip meter has limited accuracy, and rounding

errors may occur. Accuracy can also be affected by

availability and quality of GPS signals.
Different positioning methods can be enabled or

disabled in positioning settings.
