Accuracy Differences (3M vs. 5M with CoreLocation)
started a topic

Hi, I am trying to determine why or how the
default Wikitude GPS system reports a 3M accuracy while pulling in raw data
from CoreLocation etc. only ever yields a 5M or lower accuracy on the same
devices (e.g., iPhone 6).
Does the core Wikitude (Cordova plugin) use some alternate GPS system on the
backend that is somehow more accurate than the native GPS solutions? Or does
the '3' value in accuracy mean something different than it does when reported
directly through the native GPS framework? I have noted that the GPS values do
differ between the two systems but have been unable to deduce which is
technically more precise.
Do you feel I will get more accurate results by sticking to the default AR
location data, or serving my own through CoreLocation / Google Location
Services? The lower value for accuracy when using strictly AR data does confuse

The Wikitude iOS SDK uses the default CLLocationManager to get location updates. Where do you have this value '3' from?
