    as you see in attachment screenshot, it was working 100% to find me but in last 2 days, it finds me 50-60 meters away than where I'm. location is enabled with GPS and WIFI and mobile networks for better results
    I cleared cache of android manager and google location history, i could not solve the problem

    If your device is indoors, it is possible that a GPS fix could not be obtained and so it is using a cellular network antenna triangulation instead.

    Just a thought.

    It's going to struggle to find the device with that degree of accuracy as GPS won't work when indoors and if Google have no data on your SSID (wifi network) the location will be based on cell tower triangulation which is not very accurate

    LOL beaten to it!
