Post GPS Position tooooo accurate!
on: May 21, 2018 (GMT)

Your GPS Positioning Display needs to drop at least a few of the decimal point positions on both longitude and latitude. 1 second of longitude (at 34° latitude) equals about 84 feet. Your display shows the seconds down to 5 places past the decimal point, or 1/100,000 of a second. That is roughly 1/10 of an inch! Even commercial grade GPS surveying equipment would struggle with that; there is no way a smartphone can do it. And your GPS Positioning display more realistically admits an accuracy of 10-15m (30-50’). How about getting rid of all but 2 places past the second’s decimal point (about 1’)? The GPS coordinates would certainly be more realistic, AND they would fit into the display better without spilling over the sides.
