Honeybee uses two main different methods to determine location.
The first is GPS (which tends to be very accurate). However, when a GPS signal is not available, we use mobile or WiFi networks. Usually, then you get that textbook “crow’s nest” cluster effect when inside a building.
Occasionally though, even companies like Google fall short of the mark. We use Google Maps for location tracking, and there are rare occasions when Google does give us these incorrect data points. We add a lot of filters to prevent these issues, however, there is the rare occasion where issues such as these slip through.
Thankfully this rarely happens, and it is easy to spot with the naked eye. Computers do have some way to go before being able to replace human intellect. It is easy to spot these straight lines on the reports, however, it is surprisingly complex to write code that will completely eliminate it.
This is why we introduced odometer readings into Honeybee. Simply go to Settings --> Preferences --> Use odometer readings to now log 100% accurate kilometres that can be submitted in your daily reimbursement claim.
