    I have a somewhat similar issue with "Moving Speed". I kayak fish and sail in the Monterey Bay, where my speed typically varies from barely moving to 6-8mph, with rare short bursts up to a max of about 10mph. The moving speed feature is totally useless, as it tends to be practically frozen at 1.5mph or so, regardless of how fast or slow I'm actually moving. It'll sometime move up or to 1.8-2mph or down to a bit under 1mph, but it's almost always way out of sync with my actual moving speed.

     

    At the other extreme, I tested it in my car. Going 60mph, it would take a while to get to 55 or so, then ever-so-slowly inch towards 60. But then when I slowed down, it would take forever before it reduced to anything remotely similar to my actual speed.

     

    I have an iPhone 12, and I'd say that the moving speed feature is badly broken. That's a pity, as it's something that I need to measure. If nobody at gaia-gpa is going to do anything about it (as seems to be the case, based on the lack of response to this thread), I'll be looking for another app...

    I'm hoping someone from Gaia will chime in here, as I've been wanting to use the app for this purpose (monitoring and recording current speed while paddling). If this doesn't work accurately, I suppose I'll have to buy a Garmin quatix watch (but I'd prefer not to spend that kind of money!).
