I have installed the app on several phones to test the accuracy. My friends are on a bike ride in Vietnam, so it is fun to follow them.

But compared to a couple of other tracking apps installed on the same phones, Followmee is far from accurate? And compared to map and satellite map the accuracy is very poor, and not within the stated distance on the Followmee map.

I know the phones are not set up with appropriate update interval, but I think they should still show an accurate position of what it shows.
When I look at the map I can for sure say the phones has never been where they show to been. Only one correct is my own phone in Denmark.

When you track your android phone, you need to ignore the FollowMee app from battery optimization in the phone settings. Otherwise, the app cannot track in the background. For details, see this faq

Or you can open the app and press the Menu button. Then press the button "Ignore Battery Optimization".

This setting change should improve the tracking accuracy.
