I did a live track today walking 5 miles. When sharing my link the location was 12 miles from where I was. Still trying to figure this out but GPS is way off.
Not impacting everyone, but it is a system-wide issue impacting multiple device types, not only Garmin devices.
And how finaly you solved the issue? I experienced right now very big drift with my va4, ( I was using it since Jan 20, without troubles, however since 2 days ago it is disaster) thanx for help
I'm having the same problem. There are already two threads on reddit about this problem, with dozens of people (with different models) complaining about the same problem.
In my case, the whole route…
Other brands are having the same issue.
I have experienced significant GPS accuracy issues over the last few days on my Vivoactive 4. It has always been very accurate but over the last 3 days, 2 activities have been about 1km off course and today over 8kms off course and not tracking distance or circuit accurately.
the photo on the right is the course I run, the one on the right is what it’s now tracking! What can I do to fix this?
Hi there, I have been having the exact same issue with my Venu over the last 2 days. Small parts of it will be accurate but most are way off course and doesn’t remotely resemble what route I’ve actually taken. Is doing this across different activities of walking, running and cycling. Hope someone can help shed some light
Just found this on Garmin site
Garmin was aware of an issue that may cause your Garmin watch to log GPS tracks on the incorrect streets for a large duration of your outdoor activity. This issue has been resolved. Your watch will automatically download the latest satellite data to your watch over the next 24 hours.
To immediately update the satellite data on your watch, perform one of the following:
If, like me, you've found you're not getting Strava segments, or you've looked at the map of your run or cycle and found that while it follows the shape of your route, it's some way off (about 100m) where you went (so elevation corrections may be out too), here's a helpful article. I've had two runs like this (it started in 2021), and I hope my Vivoactive 4 has the right data now.
