Enable native GPS on mobile devicesLast updated on 03/01/2023

ServiceTitan Mobile can access the native GPS on the mobile device it’s installed on. This lets you send notifications to customers allowing them to track a dispatched technician’s location in real time. You can also arrive technicians by GPS.

Things to know

  • GPS is accurate within 3-10 meters. If GPS is unavailable, cellular triangulation is used which is accurate within 500 meters, or about 1/3 of a mile.

  • To avoid reporting inaccuracies, make sure each technician is assigned no more than one GPS device.

  • Technicians who use a separate GPS device, for example TomTom or Fleetmatics, cannot be tracked through real-time technician tracking in ServiceTitan. You can still send out dispatch notifications without technician tracking.
