Make sure that your phone has the location mode switched on and you are using either ‘high accuracy’ or ‘device only’ modes. It is advisable that you download and use the GPS Status and Toolbox app, as this will run in the background and will start the phone GPS quicker. (Google Play: GPS Status and Toolbox App).

Enhanced positon is ‘spiky’
You phone location may have its position ‘smoothed’ and the DDK Enhanced position is regenerating the position and removing the errors within the GPS measurements. Depending upon the satellites in view will depend upon how smooth the final position is reported.
Why can’t I use the enhanced location in all my apps?
The DDK Nav app is compatible with the GPS Status and Toolbox app, we will add to the list of applications as they come on line.

The DDK Nav app has the ability to enhance your phones GPS location by up to 70%. This will be dependent upon several factors:
- Initial phone GPS accuracy
- Satellites in view
Under optimum conditions, you will see the accuracy levels improve and you can check the accuracy enhancement levels you should be experiencing for your location at the DDK Nav website.
