Poor GPS accuracy

GPS accuracy is much worse than on my old Sony Z5 Compact. The update from yesterday with June security patch had some GPS related fixes but it didn't affect accuracy.


I mainly use GPS to track my cycling with Sports Tracker. When I look at the route I've traveled the app shows it overlayed on a map from Google Maps. The route doesn't follow the roads that I actually took accurately. At worst it shows me having cycled in a lake over ten meters away from the actual path.


The overall shape of the recorded route is correct but the details are more or less offset. The route length is in line with the same path measured with my old phone.


A GPS test app shows a good signal to plenty (around twenty) of satellites and an accuracy error rating of about five meters.

Re: Poor GPS accuracy

I run with Endomodo nearly everyday - works fine. I did GPS test (special app) just sitting with phone - my position was shows up 1 meter precision so very good.
