Android user and have been using Gaia with no issues for a few years. Latest trip had a new behavior manifest. Multi day hiking trip in Olympic Mts., WA state. Tracks were normal until later in the day, when the tracking interval became a long distance, resulting in long, straight line segments with infrequent location acquisition. When I stopped moving, Gaia would always acquire current location right away, even when it had stopped recording for a period of time prior.
Using downloaded Gaia Topo maps with route finding data. No cell service, location enabled, no power saving mode on. Plenty of storage space on device. Same setup I've been using all along.
First day it happened, it started about noon. Next day it happened later in the day, about 5 pm. Third day it happened mid afternoon, about 3:45 pm. Same situation all three days - I checked the satellite fix and had plenty of satellites. Was at alpine elevation with clear exposure to southern sky. No timber, no cloud cover.
No issues the other three days of the trip, two days of which were through deep, old growth forest and rain forest.
Would welcome any thoughts on this issue.
