WANTED...Beta-testers for Beaconeer™Lite GPS accuracy!

Hello Everyone!

We're now in the "home stretch" with getting the Beaconeer™Lite app in AppStore! It's truly been an exercise in patience! 

Once again we need Test Flight Beta-testers, to test the Beaconeer™Lite GPS  functionality on your iPhones. This is the final requirement by the Apple AppStore Review Board!

As the app developers, we too, want to make sure that the Beaconeer™Lite app will generate reliable Longitude, Latitude, and Vicinity address information, when initiated by the app user. 

Before you test the Beaconeer™Lite Build Version #202111489, a few facts about GPS and Smartphones:

  • Exact "pin-point" address" GPS accuracy is not guaranteed with most Smartphones. Per GPS.gov, even under the best conditions, typical Smartphone GPS (Latitude, Longitude) may be accurate within a 16 foot radius.
  • Therefore, our claim for the Beaconeer™Lite app is that GPS user accuracy should fall within a radius of 16 feet to 105 feet (32 meters).
  • Only costly standalone GPS devices(i.e., Garmin, ankle bracelets, GPS insoles) can provide more pin-point accuracy less than 16 feet radius, using WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System).
        For more information on GPS and Smartphone accuracy visit                                           https://www.gps.gov/systems/gps/performance/accuracy/


Let's get started... 

  1.        Is indoor GPS data display accurate, within 105 feet of your actual ground level location?
  2.         Is outdoor GPS data display accurate, within 105 feet of your actual ground level location?
  3.       Turn off your cell phone data. Do the Latitude and Longitude coordinates still display?
Thank YOU for your participation.

The anticipated deployment of  the BeaconeerLite app on AppStore will be cause for HUGE  celebration. We'll continue to keep you all posted.
