Why? How does it relate to G Max or are they just rhymes?

Didn’t her coordinates ever overlap with any In N’ Out locations?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and speculate that her erstwhile co-conspirator’s code name might have been J Eps.

I would have thought that the way they found her was because she was listed on the DBA that paid cash for the house and that it wasn’t really a secret where she was.

GPS?
Have you spelt STD wrong?

Reminds me of how the first Mission: Impossible movie had a villain played by Vanessa Redgrave who went by the pseudonym “Max” and had the line “I don’t have to tell you what a comfort anonymity can be in my profession. It’s like a warm blanket.”

It’s always bugged me that the plot of M:I just magically leapt forward when Ethan starts spamming random email addresses after figuring out the Max/Job 3:14 link. It’s not even a fully qualified domain for christ sake!

Considering that screenwriters spend so much time working on their computers it’s amazing how badly written most movie scenes involving computers are. Especially in movies written during the early days of the internet.

TLDR is: Not much to do with GPS per se, they found a phone she was using, had a bunch of other evidence from cell phone usage and other data then used a cellphone Stingray to narrow down exactly which house she was living in.
