No gps signal in airplane??
« on: May 06, 2019, 18:08:35 »
On my first flight with Locus I used a gps mouse and got 15 and more satelites displaid. But none could be used by Locus : --/20.
There were strong signals, but no fix in Locus?
No way using Locus in flights?

In the window seat I had a fix many times directly on my phone. In Locus and in my Navi-app.

I tracked 1000s of miles when at window seats, using Locus.
Some observations, though:
- GPS sensitivity differs heavily between different models (Samsungs quite OK, Moto G3 great, LG G5 a mess)
- the App GPS locker requests GPS from Android independently/ in parallel to Locus - will help to understand where the bottleneck lies.
Good luck & cheers
Michael

For me the recording works well, if a fix exists before the start. At travel speed I don't get a fix.
