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.
Janne / Finland
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…
This might be true. I had a run on 1st of Jan with the offset in my results. 945, GPS+Glonass, Hungary, Central Europe. I did a soft-reset then. Today I went on hiking and after 25 mins realized the same inaccuracy - I was try to change GPS from GPS+Galileo to GPS+Glonass in-flight but that had no effect. Then I put the activity on pause + "resume later" then resumed - and the position jumped to the correct place. Note, simple pause+resume did not fixed the posiotion, I had to "stop" the activity and restart with "resume later". So indeed after 15+ mins GPS data is fixing itself - even during an activity I assume, however has effect on a newly started/restarted activity only. I haven't tried to change back to GPS+Glonass from GPS+Galileo but I think that shall have no effect - there should be no Galileo coverage in Europe, so GPS+Galileo = GPS only here I assume.
Anyway, shame on Garmin
You're pointing your finger in the wrong direction. Coros, Suunto and Garmin are all having the issue. The common denominator? The watches with the newer Sony chipset. It's like blaming BMW for the faulty Takata Airbag that 17 other automakers used too.
