The accuracy in meters.

Remarks

Location services accuracy depends on the location data available. For example, if Wi-Fi is available, data is accurate to within 50 meters. If Wi-Fi is not available, the data could be accurate to within 10 miles or larger.

A GNSS device can provide data accurate to within a few meters. However, its accuracy can vary if the GNSS sensor is obscured by buildings, trees, or cloud cover. GNSS data may not be available at all within a building.
