    Hi,

    For the person with the longer track, try restarting the device. That usually cleans up any GPS issues.

    I like Gaia GPS in the map context... but I have a similar problem using my iphone app, distances and height levels are quite wrong, that when i compare using other apps for the same route at the same time and also comparing to a GPS. Stats in this sense does'nt look trustable, and we talk about more tyhan 10% difference.

    GPS apps use different algorithms to calculate distance and elevation changes while recording a track and we are always looking to improve how Gaia GPS performs. Can you send a copy of your track along with the name of the apps you compared to support@gaiagps.com?

    I think this is to be expected when using any GPS app.  When the phone loses gps connectivity to the satellite, the distances are inaccurate.  My distances have been up to 1.5 miles off what the book says it should be.
