Hi there,

when jogging with my wife, we both record the track with locus. In the end we've got always a difference in length. It's about 200m on 5km and we can't see a misrecorded points!?

Anyone an idea?

It's a Honor 8 & a Honor 6x. Possible, the GPS are working different/wrong?


The same for me and my wife. I also set the same configuration but there is always a difference.
Gps measures are not so accurate as we think. Running with a friend the same track and both recording the track with a garmin forerunner we also have different distances.
So not only our smartphones but also devices like garmin running watches are involved in this problem.

The total difference of 200m is the cumulative value from the small measured difference values per trackpoint. There are 4%, which I see as normal...
