Great! (W/one minor warning)
It's perfect! Tells you exactly where someone is down to the address and a pinpoint map. The only problem I've encountered is that when I'm out of town (in another time zone) it gets glitchy. Ex: if in my time zone it's 8:15, but it's 9:15 there, it shows me where they were an hour ago and gets stuck --keeps showing me where they were at 8:15 instead of where they actually are currently. This an cause an unnecessary argument if you're checking up on your spouse and they say they are gone and the locator says they're somewhere else...they could be telling the truth and the locator could be messing up.
Gone down hill the past few years
Hello, I hope your team truly read this and other reviews. We have had this at I believe for 13 years. It started out slightly glitchy then it was better for awhile with accuracy down to the address/what place looks like. It no longer does this. Now it just shows us a mass area no pin point whatsoever. This is scary and very disheartening. We thought our child had been killed and we tried to locate the phone and couldn’t. It gave a city wide range which did not help because it doesn’t pinpoint anymore like it use to. We were thankful that my grandma called a few hours later and said he was with her asleep. We have had to replace phones because of horrible accuracy. It also spins and freezes when you go manage family then it kicks you out. truly liked this app a lot but my enthusiasm had started leaving. What has happened to the app? Why can’t you add locations when you are pinpointing another phone. It use to do this so we can lock in our children’s whereabouts. 🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️😔 Come on Sprint family locater. You guys have good and bad points but the bad points are the things that’s most important accuracy and no complications. I hope this gets better so I don’t have to cancel this and find something different. Thank you
Need better geofence control. Only seems to be accurate within hundreds of yards rather then feet or inches like some other trackers. How do you set other geofences? It was and still is a bit frustrating to set it up between two phones. If this doesn't get more accurate or better we're just gonna buy keychain trackers and glue them in our shoes lol because of our hacking problems, most trackers are accurate for a day or so and someone screws it up from their pc which we do not have. I guess since we value our family so much, and that the fear of having seen our loved ones in raunchy places and scenarios (faked by the hacker's inaccurately dropping pins on some trackers we've had) it appears they want a warrant of .40 up theirs rear end! And as a mother, in not talking about a 40 ounce beer either!!! The accuracy of this tracker must improve within inches and be in total real time like FBM's used to be. Thanks for having the tracker available although but I can't buy it if the accuracy isn't improved as well as visual maps.
