altitude problems moto z3

2020-03-19, 23:13 PM
GPS altitude is less accurate than barometric, but the GPS altitude on the Z3 is very erratic compared to other GPS's. On my Z3 the altitude jumps up and down but my previous Moto Z had perfectly smooth GPS altitude. I would like to use a paragliding app with the Z3 but at the moment the altitude readout is just not usable. Is there any way to smooth it out?

Hi GT1234,

 

This is quite interesting. May I know what app are you using? Also, do you happen to have a comparison sample of the Z3 and the Z Play? If none, that's okay. However, the phone is not designed to be used for such type of activities, I would still go with the appropriate GPS altitude gadget in this case.

 

Best regards,

Hi GT1234,

 

Just following up on this thread. I apologize if on my previous reply I may have sound a bit disregardful of the phone's funtionality. Yes, the phone can be used as a medium to check the altitude and such depending on the app you're using. We're making some test but we'd like to know the exact app you're using so we can try comparing and duplicating this. Let me know here. Thanks.
