I see
There are certain apps that may cause issues with the configuration of Life360, for example, interference by GPS changers.
We will also check some another points
Could you check, please, do you have the latest version of Life 360?

Okay, thanks
All you need to do is go to the Play Store and simply choose the Life 360 app. You would find an option for an “Update” right by the logo if it needs to be updated
Customer Reply
I don't have an option to update so I must be up to date

Okay, perfect
Also, please, check for the power-saving mode. All you need to do is go to the taskbar and shut the power saving mode. Saving battery can hamper Life360 performance.
Customer Reply
The power saving mode was not on

Okay, then check this, please:
As mentioned above, location services play a major role in raising such an error. Therefore, this is definitely the most important fix when you are facing the issue of Life 360 not showing the correct location. This is what you need to do to fix the problem.
Step 1: You can simply go to the taskbar or notification bar by swiping down.
Step 2: Turn on the icon of the location.
Alternatively:
Step 1: Go to “Settings” and tap on “Location Services”.
Step 2: Give Location access a green signal i.e. toggle on the switch next to the location option.
Step 3: To enable high accuracy, you will find the “Mode” option in the Location settings. Tap on it and choose “High accuracy” option.
Customer Reply
I just don't understand how it could suddenly go from my location go across the street for 20 minutes and then come back to my location when I never left it's accurate to where I was at but why did it say I left

*****, in the apps that show location there might be the glitches like yours
If it works properly now, it means that everything is good with your app and your device
I can only recommend you how to avoid it by checking the thing we were checking earlier
