GSM is an approximate location that you can get if the device is not able to get precise GPS coordinates. Why do you get a GSM coordinate? 

There can be a couple of reasons: 

  • Your vehicle is in an underground parking, garage or any other enclosed space. Roofs, walls, other objects interfere with the GPS signal and the device is not able to communicate with GPS satellites, so you are receiving an approximate GSM location.
  • The very top part of your Monimoto is touching a metal part of your bike or GPS letters and not pointing up. If the device is not installed properly, it might not be able to receive GPS location. That is why we encourage to always make a test after it is adhered to the vehicle. 

GSM coordinates will look like this in your app:

Since it is not precise, it will show the radius around it.
