GPS accuracy problem S3 mini
I am using Pro version for few weeks and I think it's really great app. I find it very usefull especially for geocaching. The only problem I have is the GPS accuracy.
I use Galaxy S3 mini i8190, that supports both GPS and GLONASS.
The problem appears mainly (not only) under trees, in the forest etc ... The deviation is sometimes 200m. You can imagine that with this accuracy it is sometimes impossible to find a cache :)
The fix is always very fast, but after some time, the position goes slowly wrong.
I spent couple of hours (days) googling for possible solution. The only things I found was - do not turn the display, using GPS status, GPS test. I have the screen always on and switching off display doesn't influence the accuracy. I usually ride bike.
Whenever I check satelites in use, the count is normally more than 5-6 even in the forest.
Calculated accuracy 5m.
When I compare it with 7 years old PDA Asus A696, the PDA doesn't have this issue and is much more accurate in this area.
I am attaching example screen - the same way in both directions - once almost directly on the route, the way back 200m deviation.
I think this is not problem of Locus, but what do you think?
Can I change settings in Locus to improve this issue?
Is it problem of my particular phone?
What should I chech / try to find the root cause?
Is such deviation acceptable?
Is it possible to turn off GLONASS satelites? I didn't find this option in the system settings.
I am thinking of RMA the phone ir buying external GPS bluetooth module.
Thank you for each input
