That's why it says "time and location saved" on the screen as soon as you tap the Report button.

No - but the location used is the one at the point you press the first report button (ie the icon in the bottom right). The time you take to complete the details and press submit has no bearing on the location!

Correct location of reported stuff

Postby KarlBauman » Tue Nov 27, 2012 12:02 pm

I am never able to report Police exactly in the right place, because while I take my phone, press all needed buttons on the menu, I have already driven about 200m away from the place where I saw the police.
Is there a feature to correct my reported stuff?
