Why is my location shown incorrect?

There are many possible reasons Mobile Sarasota History Alive! is not accurately indicating your present location.

  1. Your device does not support the HTML 5 Geo-location protocol
  2. Location Services on your mobile device are turned off or disabled
  3. The time stamp of the location provided by your device is stale/expired
  4. Some phones do not use true GPS services, but triangulate their location via cell towers which can be affected by signal interference
  5. You are not presently inside of Sarasota County so the App defaults to a pre-defined location
  6. You opted not so "share" your location with the App
