IOS GPS Stream Widget Trigger Speed

Hi I am a senior electronics engineering technologies major and I am working on my senior project. Part of my project uses the GPS Stream Widget to send the phones gps coordinates to a robot so that it can follow the phone. I noticed through testing that the GPS Stream Widget send coordinates very slowly (like every 6 seconds) and I was wondering if there was a way to trigger it to send coordinates faster or if the developers plan updating the widget so you can change the triggering rate.

Hi, the app location reports are based on location changes, upon the desired “accuracy” set in Widget Settings.

The available values of accuracy on iOS are described here: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/corelocation/cllocationaccuracy
