Ah, now I get more of the story. He attempted to try it out on DD2 s phone, and it set the program up for all of us on the plan. Apparently, it's telling him that me and my phone are outside by the back gate. Close, I'm sitting on the sofa by the fireplace. DD2 is apparently standing on our neighbors' driveway. Also close, she's sitting in our kitchen. DD 1 better hope none of her friends live next to a bar...or anything.
When enabled and working correctly, wireless GPS is pretty good. Our arial maps at work will pin the caller fairly close to where they actually are. They will show in the woods beside the house they are calling from, etc. It at least gets you in the general area.
