Gps accuracy Ticwatch Pro 4g

Post by albinoduartecordeiro » Wed Jan 01, 2020 1:08 pm

Hello.

I just had my first run using only the GPS of my new TicWatch Pro 4g, and the GPS accuracy was very inconsistent.

It did track well the first 0.5 km, but then it track everything wrong.

I had made the same track I usually do (in the past I use the TicWatch Pro and always track ok) and know, since I have the TicWatch Pro 4g, GPS is not working properly.

Do you have any suggestions how to solve it?

Thanks.

Were you running with your phone as well? We have had users report that when connected to the phone, the watch tries to use location from the phone GPS which results in erratic tracking.

Also, are you using a 4G service provider? If not, is mobile data enabled or disabled? I have seen issues with GPS tracking when movie data is enabled without active 4G service.

I have similar issues.
Just bought the 4g as a feature, but not using it yet.
I have not enabled mobile data. I run with My phone with me as well to get notifications and play music.
It's really disappointing to run with inaccurate gps, as it is an important part and one of the reasons why I bought the watch.

The tracking in ticexercise is over 1 km off. 1 km too long on each run. A 2,81 km walk in Runkeeper today was 3,39 km on the watch.

That's not good enough.
