GPS & Tracking
The GPS aspect of the game is completely unreliable. You can be in the exact location of a pokéstop, but nowhere near it in the game. This is especially fun when you’re either heading to a specific pokéstop, gym or trying to track down a Pokémon. One positive thing to come out the GPS glitch is that if you are in a stationary position, like at work, and you turn on the game, it will walk around because of how inconsistent the games tracking system is. This works wonder when you want to hatch eggs, but have to work that 9 to 5.
Speaking of tracking, as of the latest update it has been turned off. Not that it was of any use before that, but at least then it gave you a vague idea of how close or far off the Pokémon were. The worst part is that there was never any indication of what direction you needed to travel to cause an encounter. It was all hope, blind luck and patience, which all players were quickly running out of. Luckily, there are apps and websites that have heard our cries and created an exact way to track the location of Pokémon and how long they will be there. My site of choice is pokevision.com, and it was an absolute game-changer when I discovered it. Gone are the days of wondering how far that Dragonite really is because all you have to do is check the site for an exact location. The only downside is that it is currently linked to the dreaded Pokémon Trainer Club, and every time it goes down, so does the website. Unless one of Pokémon Go’s future updates has a radical change in their tracking system, I don’t foresee ever using it again when there are better, more efficient options.
