Re: How to see a list of Bluethooth devices ?

we're getting that functionality ready to go - since bluetooth devices are very mobile, we're working on some new functionality to help you understand position more reliably!

Cheers,

SP2005 - sorry, the button isn't there yet; I'm proposing implementing it that way!

Note, as much as this looks like us, no members of the WiGLE team posed for this picture.

Re: How accurate is the map filter to only show what I have discovered?

Interesting question! There are a lot of possible explanations: 1. If you've logged mobile WiFi access points, things you've observed may have been more commonly seen elsewhere. If you pick an individual point, you can look it up in the detail search to get a coverage polygon. 2. If an access point ...

Re: Half a Billion WiFi Networks Geolocated

Thanks for your support! Show your friend the maps!

a lot of us are in the same boat with two phones, even on android now, because of the scanning changes on Android Pie. :(

Re: Upload to wigle.net on Dashboard?

we should add it as a configurable option - there's plenty of spare space on that screen on most modern devices; we've been a little cautious about adding controls just because it can get crowded on small devices. I'll note that you can also use the notification controls to initiate uploads as well,...

Re: Waiting for GPS sync

sorry to hear that, and thanks for your interest and the report. I've seen some weird GPS behavior in recent android releases (Oreo and Pie, specifically) that line up with this. A couple of checks to get to the bottom of this: 1. bring up the "dashboard" tab - what value is next to the "Loc:" label...

Re: Wigle Wifi for Android: Suggestions

that sounds like a great feature idea!

I don't have a device myself, but the use case makes a lot of sense.
You can open an issue on github (or submit a PR!) against the WiGLE WiFi Wardriving project to get it faster, but we've added it to our feature log!

Re: Logged cells on v2.38

those have unique LTE identifiers - the MCC/MNC values (the first six digits) differ, even though the subsequent elements match. https://api.wigle.net/api/v2/cell/mccMnc?mcc=234&mnc=15 and https://api.wigle.net/api/v2/cell/mccMnc?mcc=234&mnc=10 are the corresponding API urls (you can hit those with ...

Re: Android App isn't mapping WiFis while driving: Rarely displays dark blue and light blue "balloons" while wardriving

yeah - that's the issue. let them know what we think of this limitation! we figure most WiGLE users are pretty sophisticated, and we're *very* up-front about what we're doing. I'm guessing Google angry about the surreptitious collection (and the related battery drain) some apps employ to monetize th...

Re: Google Pie and Wifi Wardriving

haven't researched it extensively because we don't want to ask our users to risk security problems in exchange for network detection - but by all means, let's study and collect options!

Re: Android App isn't mapping WiFis while driving: Rarely displays dark blue and light blue "balloons" while wardriving

Is it running Android Pie?

Google has kneecapped WiFi scanning in Pie and has indicated they're going to eliminate it entirely, see this issue and star to tell them it's a problem.

ah, they've moved the preference: https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-disable-persistent-notifications-in-android-oreo/ shows how to get to system notifications on Oreo. The notification in question is labeled "Network Available" on mine. I'm not sure whether the issue persists in modern pho...
