Hey, I have a question regarding the quality of the native app gps tracking vs the ios safari version. It's highly possible that I am doing something wrong. I was trying to make a mobile app that includes following the user around and updating their location asynchronously and passing that location to google maps. The location data returned through the W3C built in browser coordinates seems inaccurate.

I am assuming that both the native and the web use the same gps reciever, correct? So that must mean that the native app somehow finds and displays the correct location through an algorithm of some kind. Long story short, do you know of any way to leverage the quality of the gps location displayed in the native app, in the browser?
