Harry Potter Wizards Unite GPS Sync issues trouble players

Harry Potter Wizards Unite game is approaching its second month, and the game’s player base is slowing increasing over time. However, the game did not receive a mega opening like Pokemon Go.

Time and again various bugs kept plaguing the Wizards Unite game, and Niantic kept providing fixes for the same. But over the last two days, Wizard Unite players have been encountering an issue with GPS sync. Complaints regarding this are proliferating across the official Wizards Unite Community.

A few users have also pointed out that their GPS works fine and traces also appear on the map, but their Avatar does not move.

Also, at the time of travelling, Avatar stands still for a minute or just randomly pops up somewhere in the player’s vicinity. Users have also suggested using the GPS Status app. According to them, the GPS Status app improves GPS accuracy for many applications, including Wizards Unite and Pokemon Go.
