uconnect app location question

I have a question about the app. How often does the location get updated. For example, Im tracking to see where the car is, the location on the map shows the same place for about an hour even though the car has moved to a different location. Not that accurate.

Why cant it work like the find myiphone app. I noticed on that app, its constantly being updated as you move.

Re: uconnect app location question

I thought it was suppose to find your parked car. It may assume that your parked vehicle isn't moving, and therefore, doesn't bother updating???

The app is just for finding where you parked your car? Wasn't aware of that.

Re: uconnect app location question

For me app gets updated only when vehicle is not moving. In other hands whenever i log into app from my phone based on location services.
