LBS is a method of getting location data from cell sites of GSM operators. It is used when GPS receiver in your phone is turned off or too weak and there is also no way to receive coordinates via nearest Wi-Fi router. Internet connection is still necessary to pass LBS data from a phone to our servers. LBS accuracy is pretty low, around 300-7000 feet (100-2000 meters).
On the map, it is indicated by “No GPS” icon. In History mode, it is enabled by clicking on the LBS icon in the lower right corner.
