Find my iPhone accuracy

I am wondering what the possibilities are of "find my iPhone " app being off by 30+ miles as well as what it's accuracy statistics are...?

Nobody can tell you what the overall accuracy statics are for Find My iPhone because Apple will not tell us. My personal experience is that Find My iPHone is VERY accurate, usually to within a few yards, 90% of the time.. 10% of the time, within a few miles. But I have read of people reporting that it is often very inaccurate for them, and off by miles all the time.
There are many factors that determine it's accuracy - proximity to WiFi signals, GPS satellite lock, being indoors, being in a car, and more.
All that said, I have never heard of anyone reporting it to be 30 miles off..

Find my iPhone is always pretty accurate for me. Its never been more than 1 mile off, and is almost always right-on.
