Why is my Android getting erratic distance readings from my beacon?

Sometimes you can be provided distance estimates that are too high or too low depending on Android device model. This is because each Android model has a different Bluetooth antenna with a different antenna gain.

We plan to resolve this in the future with per-model distance calculations. For now, the best way to get an accurate estimate on a particular Android device is to calibrate your beacon for that specific Android device.

Here is an article on how to calibrate your beacon.
