    Distance Measurement with GPS

    I use a new device (lenovo p780 android 4.2) and seems there is a problem

    On my walking log app, some of them gives wrong results. For example, with sport tracker I walked 1.5 km in 15 min. and the app told me I walked 30 km...
    BTW, the problem doesn't occur with all apps, the runkeeper (same device & route) gave me an accurate result.

    I understood it's more general problem with many apps and many devices

    Is there any solution to that problem?

    thanks

    Welcome to the site. Hopefully someone can give you feedback on this problem. Meanwhile I would stick with whatever gives accurate results.

    Try an app that helps your GPS connection...like gps tools. It could possibly solidify your GPS connection and give you better results. Hope this helps?

    MAXXED OUT!!!!!

    make sure that you have walked the same route as mentioned by your gps system. May be you took a short cut and the device detected it as a long route.
