Muscovites complained about the massive failure of geolocation

Москвичи пожаловались на массовый сбой геолокации

Users of multiple location-based services are faced with the fact that their location in Moscow defined incorrectly. Navigation “bore” people out of the city center to Sheremetyevo airport, reports RIA “Novosti”.

At least two applications worked properly – “Yandex.Map” and Google Maps. Failures were observed on Tverskaya ulitsa, Varshavskoye shosse, Kiev railway station, near Fili metro station “Oktyabrskaya” and other places.

In a press-service of “Yandex” reported that problems are likely associated with failures of the GPS. And this applies to all the services and devices that use geolocation.

“Geospatial applications are getting ready to have erroneous coordinates from the device, and not decode the signal from satellite directly,” said the company.

Previously, Google admitted that monitors the location of users that have gadgets on the Android operating system.
