Just had a run with my 945. GPS was way off during the run, I mean about 50-100 meters off reality during the whole route.
Has anyone else had this today? Using GPS+Glonass setting.

I have done a few more experiments and think I have worked out what is going on.
Before going for a run today I connected to GC on my PC and did a sync. I verified the CPE had downloaded correctly by checking…
Not impacting everyone, but it is a system-wide issue impacting multiple device types, not only Garmin devices.
I've just done some work today, and you can take the GPX file and make a manual adjustment to the lon / lat and correct it.
It would be too labour intensive, so I made a small python file to make the…
935 seems fine 945 is off.
A garmin express update improved the offset by ~50% but it’s still there.
Tried all 3 gps modes and same result so it must be a garmin software issue for 945 users. Thankfully the track is the right shape and distance, just not well overlaid, and I assume that means the climbing metrics are off.
Maybe I can use this as a reason (excuse) for my slow pace!?
yep, I get it too.
others get it on coros and suunto.
I do NOT get it on my Apple Watch SE with GLONASS but do on my 945 with or without GLONASS./GALILEO
I can't get rid of the CPE Expired message and have tried several things to get around that.
So...it's probably Sony. I can't see Sony reacting quickly, let's see if Garmin can get a workaround sorted. as obviously I can't do any exercise if my GPS is 't working. Even the stress of an incorrect GPS fix will stop me from doing indoor workouts.
But that's not what's really going to hurt Garmin. The first woman who's attacked and uses Incidence Detection sending the cops blocks away from her location will seriously damage Garmin's reputation. The ambulance looking for the heart attack victim blocks away from his actual location will seriously damage Garmin's reputation
Incident Detection is sending the alert and location from your phone. You're gonna have to find a different frivolous lawsuit against Garmin Perry Mason.
The trail runner that gets lost relying on his GPS and has to be found by Search and Rescue will seriously damage Garmin's reputation.
Don't forget Nike's reputation should their shoelace become untied and they trip and fall.
One thing I noticed is that despite the mapped route being completely off, as well as the paces throughout the run (e.g. 1-mile PR, other bizarre stats), the total distance is spot on (and therefore the average pace for the run). I verified this because I ran a known and measured route and it came in to the dial. I'm not sure how the distance could be so accurate and yet all the data in between, including the map, are way off (and don't add up to the same total distance reported).
This is the 3rd time this happens, with the first incident on Dec 23rd for me. I've had the FR 945 for 6+ months and no issues prior.
