(WS and BS welcome to respond)

I have the GPS turned on my WH's phone. I don't think he knows that I can track him via his phone. I have been really struggling this past week. I am feeling jumpy and edgy, like something is not right. WH is not doing anything suspicious and there are several situations happening right now that have been triggering me left and right.

The problem is that I was checking his location via his Android Device Manager through his gmail account. Twice today it showed him being in an area that he said he was not at. Both locations are only about a mile from his work.

Is it possible that the GPS is getting the location wrong or is he hiding something from me? Is anyone familiar or have this happen to them?

My bff had problems when she would check on her son. Many times it would tell her he was somewhere other than where he stated he would be. Finally, after he protested enough, she tried it when he was home standing next to her and it showed he was about a mile away.


I'm sorry if you don't like my Honesty, but to be fair I don't like your lies.

Sometimes it's better to push someone away...not because you stopped loving them but because you can't take the pain anymore.

Not sure about the margin of error but it depends on the app/program. My android GPS is notorious for telling me I'm on another street, but it's relatively close.

I have had this happen with WH's Android phone. When I looked closer, the actual GPS coordinates were correct. The program simply mapped those coordinates in the wrong place.

my android GPS repeatedly is off by a few blocks. We will be at home, and it will show us 2-3 streets away. This is done using Lookout for Droid.

Not sure about using Android Device Manager through gmail. What is that anyway and how does it work?

Yes they can be off. You can also compare it to the places he's been using *google location history*. Same username and password should work.

Don't even get me started with GPS issues. YES, they can be wrong. They can give you terrible directions sending you over 2 toll bridges that are miles away from your destination, only to end up at your destination 1hr late (and two tolls past) to somewhere that should only be a 20min drive...luckily in this eg we knew where we were and ignored the GPS directions.

There was a couple who died in the desert near Vegas I believe because they followed their GPS instructions into the middle of nowhere. There are streets on the GPS that don't even exist yet in the real world. And as others have mentioned, sometimes the GPS has you just far enough out from where you actually are to somewhere 'close by' that you shouldn't be. It wouldn't be enough IMO to determine what my WHs behaviors were, which is why I don't track him with GPS. He could be exactly where he should be and still up to no good IMO...have you thought about a video camera instead? Mine uses his GoPro to record his drive to/from places when he wants to assure me that was where he went...this was all his idea, not mine and I find it corny but I don't complain because it shows he's trying.

Sometimes GPS will map to the nearest cell tower if the person is indoors and the phone can't see the sky. Ran into this with my (now ex) GF's phone running spyware. (the friend finder IPhone app also uses wifi location and showed where she actually was.)

Can GPS be wrong? of course it can.

But something has your hackles up doesn't it?

I would not ignore that. If your gut is screaming at you, listen.

Everytime my gut screamed it was right.

Time to borrow a friends car and a disguise, and do some PI work. Dig a bit more. If you find nothing it will build some trust back, if you do find something, then you will know it's time to change paths.

(((and strength)))

ps I hope it's just triggers.
