We recommend the following settings for the most accurate speed and driving data collection:
- Enable all permission settings for the Life360 app.
- Always keep Wi-Fi turned on, even when a connection to Wi-Fi is not available.
We strive to provide reasonably accurate speed information in the Life360 app, however, accuracy is determined in large part by the quality of your service and your device. Due to this, it is possible that some points during your trip might be missed or speeds captured may be inaccurate.
- For example, the app could show a trip from point A to point B happening in a shorter time, which could lead to a higher speed reading than the actual driving speed.
Speed detection provides top speed per trip and average speed for Driver Reports.
- Driver Reports vary based on your membership level.
Note: The accuracy of speed and location information within the app, most of which is outside of Life360’s control, is not designed nor intended to be provided to traffic authorities in order to support insurance claims or for any other matters that may require proof of speed or location. If you wish to capture your driving history, we recommend taking screenshots of the information in your app.
