So my wh offered a tracking device and put life 360 on his phone. Has him away from office for 3 hours today , but he denies it. Anyone else have that problem????

It is working fine on my tablet. How far from his office does it show him? It isn't always spot on....

It has him near his office, but about 5-6 miles away. I called him at his work number and he answered it, so I know he wasn't there. Also, the two locations it had him at were both woods....He's not done it in a wooded forest, as far as I know

I use Life360 and upon one early occasion as I was heading to work, I saw that my FWH was not at home or heading to work, but was shown near a series of condos about 2 miles from my house. I flipped the truck around, drove back to the coordinates, and found an empty field. I called him, he answered, and from the noise in the background, I could tell that he was driving. Turns out, to work.

Life360 occasionally will be off by a couple of miles. It can be maddening, but unless you're using Google Earth for up to the minute GPS tracking, most apps will have a margin of error. Try hitting the update button to get it to ping the phone again. If that doesn't work, then hit the request or emergency button and demand a check in by him.

I use as I found 360 not that reliable.
Although greenalp is pretty accurate (usually within 50 metres), I sometimes find it turned off on WH's phone - he tells me he doesn't switch it off it turns off itself. If I find it off I text him and he will send a pxt - this has the time, date and gps location.

Have him turn off wi-fi on his phone. Life 360 often drops out when you're in a public place such as Starbucks that offers wi-fi but you're not signed into it. Once we figured that out it has been reliable.

Yes. 360 not always reliable. Useful? Very. But not worth betting the marriage on.
