The need for reliability in the field of ubicomp is well recognised  so as to make business and day-today running of ubicomp dependable. Along with ubicomp progresses, several reliability related questions will also crop up and quite some research has been based on empirical simulator based approaches to supply answers [14-65] and new metrics for ubicomp have been laid forward. What now must be put forward in research community is the methodology that was devised so that the previous work [14-65] could be carried out. The methodology itself has been novel and required designing and implementing components that were not previously developed nor was available off-the-shelf. The methodology is split into five steps. In this paper, the first step concerning methodology of gathering the exact location of positions and its particularities are put forward. This is carried out irrespective of concerns for whether MANET nodes are supplied as infrastructure or not. The results of this study can serve towards better formulation of “Exact Location Tracking of Ubicomp MANET nodes” or using this methodology devised to prepare many off-the-shelf such components over various movement patterns in ubicomp. This would in turn, facilitate work of further research in the research community. This paper is a retrospective delivery of the methodology developed over which previous work [14-65] was done.
