Current Position Arrowhead not working correctly
Similar problem to Deyan, posted a few days ago.
A user of Gaia for many months, I've made a number of Track recordings, long and short. Lately the Current Position is wildly inaccurate when I'm recording a Track. The Track is successfully recording my movement on a line, but the Arrowhead is seldom at the head of my Track, sometimes not even on my screen, maybe kilometres away.
I thought that this may have been due to an Android update to version 11, (Galaxy Note 10), so I uninstalled and reinstalled Gaia, but the problem persists.
I've double checked my Settings, though I was confident that my Location Settings were correct, my Tracks record successfully and I have no reason to doubt the Statistics provided for a completed Track.
The inaccuracy of the Arrowhead becomes a particularly frustrating problem on an out and back Track. On the return journey from the turnaround you could be anywhere on the track as there is obviously a line already drawn from Track beginning to turnaround and your position could be anywhere on that line.
Any help for a fix?
I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing problems with the location arrow displaying properly on the map.
