Elevation glitches on track recorded

Marco shared this problem 19 months ago
Not a Problem

Using below settings at every ride I got 1 to 3 elevation glitches:

- srtm optimize

- altitude filter high

If I move to below settings no glitches but elevation gain is 30% lower than barometric Garmin and Strava:

- srtm replace

- altitude filter ultra

Any raccomandation?

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 > Pressure sensor > turn ON (if available)


Thanks for the feedback will test the recommended settings.

Anyhow please note that position looks correct in the map so I was expecting srtm to handle corrections


It does but be aware that SRTM data is based on a generalized data model of the landscape. It doesn't cover all tiny terrain details.
