GPS Location Gabb Phone 3

Mom2seven Member Posts: 2

Anyone else struggling to keep the GPS location working on tracking your child? It worked OK for us from February 2024 until end of June 2024 when suddenly it no longer works. I've tried resetting the phone, deleted and reinstalled the app, kept up on updates.....

Anyone have success getting theirs to work after not working? Anyone having the same issue?

    my son’s Gabb 3 phone location rarely works. Over Christmas break we had an instance where he believed he forgot his phone at school. We were unable to locate it and a couple days into break the battery died. Before it died I tried to update the location multiple times and it never worked even after calling. It said his location was downtown. The last day of break he found his phone in our house in his back pack.

    Now location hasn’t updated in a week. He was literally sitting right next to me with his phone and his location would not update. This has been mu biggest frustration thus far. Is anyone else having this issue? We have great cell service plus wifi he is connected to.
