    "The locations on my phone isnt spot on and its not accurate enough and puts me in the next town over in the locations. It has good potantial but it might prove harmful to people if they think they live in the next town. But the tracking on storms and typhoons are realy helpfull and can be used to keep away from huricane florence,"
