Is there a way to "fine-tune" the GPS coordinates? As an example, the Automatic GPS currently indicates my parking location is one block away from where it is actually parked. If I could somehow correct that information by adding the correct location the GPS coordinate used by Automatic could course correct to tie its coordinate to a known location and thus show where my car is actually parked.

Hi John! Unfortunately, there is no way to "fine-tune" or manually enter GPS coordinates. The GPS is dependent on the signal from either your phone or adaptor at this time. So if you have "bad signal", it is possible that your GPS location will be inaccurate. I hope this helps!

Which GPS is Automatic using to track my location ( the Automatic GPS or the Phone GPS)?

The Automatic adaptor uses your phone's GPS to determine your location primarily. However, it also has its own dedicated GPS module that can record trips in the case that your phone GPS is not present. You can read more about it here: https://community.automatic.com/autom...
