The following table provides some recommendations to follow for the application to run correctly:
|For the app to function properly and synchronize data with the server online, the device must be connected to the Internet|
|To determine location, it is necessary to enable access to geodata|
|As a rule, turning on this mode may result in geodata and the Internet access restriction|
|It is recommended to turn on the WiFi module for fast and energy-efficient geolocation in urban and indoor environments|
|It is recommended to turn on the Bluetooth module for fast and energy-efficient geolocation in urban and indoor environments|
Geodata sources in the X-GPS
To determine locations, the X-GPS App uses satellite GPS/GLONASS navigation as well as alternative geolocation methods, for example, by cellular base stations and Wi-Fi hotspots.
Apart from this, the application supports smart energy-saving algorithms and special settings that allow users to get the desired accuracy with minimal battery consumption — when walking or driving.
In your device’s settings, you can increase location accuracy by allowing the use of all the available networks. To do it, open the device’s settings → Biometrics and security → Location → Slide the Location switch to the right → Tap on Improve accuracy → Activate WI-Fi and Bluetooth scanning.

No, it cannot. We believe that hidden surveillance is unethical and therefore do not provide such an opportunity. In addition, in most countries, it is illegal. The user will always be aware of the X-GPS application presence: it will be visible in notifications and in the application manager.
