Update my Redmi note 7 to miui 12.5 when using the activity tracking with the MiFit application, the GPS tracking is erratic, it marks distances greater than those traveled and if the positioning is verified with apps like Google Maps or Strava these indicate that I am in a distant location to which I really find myself. I think that when enabling the approximate location as an option in the rom, this causes error, I warn that I use the above mentioned applications with with the exact location option.

Excuse the translation, I don't speak English, I read it and understand it, I wrote the message with google translator

Model: redmi Note 7
Version Rom: 21.1.6 Beta

Are you sure don't you have "Approximate location" enabled for Mi Fit on permission settings (Use location)?

Confirm. Approximate location option not included
I checked the parameters to be sure, as I mentioned in the initial post, I am going to downgrade to miui 12 and then do a review with the apps and verify if it is a bug in the rom. I clarify that before updating to Miui 12.5 the applications and the GPS tracking and location system worked perfectly, with almost millimeter accuracy.

As you can see in the second image the approximate location is off
