Settings for location determinationThis feature offers a lot useful settings, due to the fact that some devices contain less accurate GPS receivers.

Distance
Defines the distance between location updates in meters.

Accuracy
Defines the minimum accuracy of the measurement in meters. The larger the value, the less accurate is the measurement being recorded. Please note, that some devices contain less accurate GPS receivers. A good receiver should have an accuracy of about 30 meters and less. But some cheap mobile phones contain receivers which offer an accuracy of 50 meters and more. To cover all devices, the default value for this setting is 100 meters. It's recommended to lower this value if your device contain a better receiver.
