I have location sharing on Google Maps and when my husband goes to his friends house turns on his hotspot and they log on I can see my husband on Google Maps jumping all over the map within a half a mile to a mile away from his actual place where he is why does it do that?

    Can't be sure without more details. First, we have a way to go before accuracy becomes reliable. And second, it can depend on how the phone is connecting; a cell connection can give different results from Wi-Fi and the connection may switch between those (and multiple cell towers can also be involved).

    In short, it's probably simply normal under whatever the complete circumstances are for the phone, the towers and whatever connections succeed.

    Is your husband & you use same cellular network? When he is out of the home, how does he access net connection? When he is out of the home, are you staying at home every time ? Are you getting constant signal/ connection when he is out of the home?

    I'm leaning the same way as Raven. If he's using his cell signal and it's bouncing from cell tower to tower that may be causing the location change. Without more specific details we can only make a best guess on the info you provided. Is there a concern that his tracking location is not reporting correct?
