GPS data while standing still

One of our users wrote in to tell us that he saw some strange readings in SportyPal while standing still on the balcony. The application had recorded that he had crossed over 200 meters, all while standing in one place.

This is not a bug with SportyPal, this is an inherent and unavoidable flaw of most devices’ GPS. GPS works best if you keep moving. If you need to stop during your workout, you should use the pause button to avoid recording bad data.
