How To Simulate GPS Movement With Location Spoofer?

For a realistic effect, it is best to add a simulation procedure against the location spoofer that is being used to shift the location of the user's smartphone. How does one simulate GPS movement? Wondershare Dr.Fone - Virtual Location provides the perfect option explaining how to mock GPS path and simulate GPS movement across it.

Part 1: Simulate Movement Along a Route (One-Stop Route)

You can set up a one-stop route when mocking locations fake with Dr.Fone - Virtual Location. This particular feature helps users to set up looping or round trips within a specific location. To perform the steps for simulating movement, look ahead for a better understanding:

Step 1Access One-Stop Route Function

Once you launch Wondershare Dr.Fone - Virtual Location and connect your smartphone successfully, proceed to select the One-Stop Route function from the top-right section. The function is represented by the third icon from the left in the section. While you have already teleported to another location or are using your current location, you can tap anywhere on the map to set your destination location.

Step 2Define Simulation Parameters

Enter a number to define how many times you want to go back and forth, and select whether you want a Round trip or a Loop trip. Drag the slider on the speed option to set how fast you want to walk. Proceed to click Move Here on the bottom to start the movement simulation.

Step 3Start Simulation Movement

The respective simulation starts, and you can see your position is moving on the map with the speed you set. If you wish to hold the simulation, click Pause or tap Clear to revert to your original state.

Part 2: Simulate Movement Along a Route (Multi-Stop Route)

You can try the multi-stop mode if you want to pass by multiple places along a route on the map. Learn how it is done when you are trying to spoof location on Android/iOS:

Step 1Start Multi-Stop Route and Set Parameters

Activate the Multi-Stop Route mode from the top-right section next to the One-Stop Route mode. After activating the mode, set multiple spots on the map by clicking your required place. Define the number of trips and speed. Click Start Moving to initiate the process.

Note: Select the spots along a specific road to prevent the game developer from thinking you are cheating.

Step 2View Multi-Stop Route Movement

As the simulation starts, click Pause at any instance where you want to stop the simulation. You can also Clear all settings if required.

Part 3: Use Joystick for More Flexible GPS Control (Joystick Movement)

Dr.Fone has integrated the joystick feature into the Virtual Location program to spare 90% of the labor for GPS control. You can always find the joystick on the lower left part in teleport mode. And you can also click the joystick button in the upper right (the 5th one) to use the joystick feature.

The joystick, like one-stop route or multi-stop route modes, aims to facilitate GPS movement on the map. But what's better? The joystick lets you move on the map by changing directions in real time. Here are the two main scenes where you will definitely love the joystick.

  • Automatic GPS movement: Click the Start button in the middle, and the automatic movement starts. Then just change the directions as you like by 1) clicking the left or right arrows, 2) dragging the spot around the circle, 3) pressing keys A and D on the keyboard, or 4) pressing keys Left and Right on the keyboard.
  • Manual GPS movement: Move forward by constantly clicking the Up arrow in the program and long-pressing the key W or Up on the keyboard. Reverse by constantly clicking the Down arrow, or long-pressing the key S or Down on the keyboard. You can also tweak the directions using the four ways above before moving forward or reverse.
