It is recommended to use a Wi-fi connection over mobile data in order to get a better detection of your location or GPS fix.
Sometimes, you need to calibrate your compass by making movements in the shape of 8 with your phone horizontally to adjust the compass. To ensure proper calibration, repeat the movements at least 5 times. Always refer to you phone's manual or instructions on how to calibrate its compass.
