When outdoors, the Liberty uses GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) to send its position via overhead satellites to pinpoint the watch’s location, with accuracy of 3 meters to 30 meters.
When indoors, accuracy is reduced from 10 meters to 100 meters or more and can show as the house next door, or further away depending on the proximity to the nearest mobile mast. GPS devices are primarily for outdoor location but remember with two-way calling, you can call your loved ones any time.
The Location Map shows you the location of your loved one, when you open the screen it can take 2 minutes to update the real time /current location. The location box reports what the watch is working off, either GPS or LBS, to give you its current location.
When the location box reports LBS (Local Base Station) generally the watch is indoors and this indicates cellular positioning which is usually accurate from 100 meters to 1000+ meters depending on the distance away from the nearest mobile phone base station (LBS) that the watch is registered to.
In general, GPS devices are designed for outdoor use, therefore they are not as accurate when used indoors. Please note that when locating a watch that is indoors, the location can show as close as the house next door, or a lot further away depending on the LBS unit it is connected to. It is important to look at the location box to see if the watch is using GPS or LBS for location as LBS is not as reliable.
But remember if you have a concern all you have to do is call them, the watch is a phone!
For normal use, the watch will operate under normal work mode, reporting the current location at 20 minute intervals.

On the Location box, click on the left or right arrows on screen to check the location history.
