Driver Tracking Accuracy

driver location precision

GetSwift uses the geolocation services in the smartphone.  Different phones behave differently and we recommend that for optimum results, the GetSwift App remains open at all times while a driver is logged on for their shift.  This will prevent GPS driver locations becoming stagnant.


driver Location Setup

 To use the GetSwift Driver Application, you MUST turn on your devices GPS location settings:

  • Note: If you do not turn on your location settings and have it set as shown below - the application will not work correctly

 

Set to ‘On’ and ‘High Accuracy’

 

Set to ‘Always’

 
 

driver’s battery power

Please also note, Geolocation services use additional smartphone battery resources.  We encourage all drivers to start their shifts with a full battery charge to ensure battery life is strong.  To get the maximum out of smartphone battery life, we also recommend:

  •  Do NOT activate power saving mode

  • Turning screen brightness down

  • Closing other app’s not currently in use

  • Having an in-car charger or bracket for mounting for directions
