Diagram shows big jumps, although the path is flat

Hello,

when recording a track, although there are only very moderate ups and downs in the path, a very large number of altitude changes are displayed. Is there a way at Locus to level this recording? Or are these simply inaccurate results of the GPS signal? The attached trail is almost level, only slight even gradients, but according to the recording the altitude jumps up to 15 meters.

Many greetings

Günter

Hello Günter,

Locus Map processes elevation gain from the data it receives from your phone GPS. If the data are incorrect or contain huge deviations, then the resulting elevation gain is also incorrect. Locus Map, however, offers a few methods on how to limit these deviations. Open Locus settings > GPS&sensors:


- Location filter > select medium or heavier filter


- Google Services assisted location > turn it ON


- Altitude manager > settings tab > SRTM data - select "Optimize GPS values" or "Replace GPS values"


- Altitude manager > settings tab > Pressure sensor > turn ON (if available)


- Altitude manager > settings tab > Altitude filter - select medium or heavier filter.

I hope this procedure helps you and your issue is resolved


Have a nice weekend
