Find my device jumps locations

Android Central Question


I have a gmail account installed on several devices. Only on one device the location tracking is turned on.

When check the locaction with "find my device" it gives the correct location 90 % of the time.

But recently it was giving back unrealistic locations. It jumped from street location to open field location (in a range of less then 1 km) to back on another location on another street but all in the same range of 1km or bit more. Is this possible ? Can the gps of a device be so off ? Or what is going on ?
