GPS sensor rate - only 1 per 20 sec
(10-27-2020, 09:56 PM)Jens Noritzsch Wrote: The rate of the location “sensor” is set by the OS and there is no way to get more frequent data. Such a low number of readings is unusual though. There might be issues with the GPS signal reception (or the other means in finding a location), inside buildings, for instance, – or trams.

From time to time, I experience these on trains and particularly on Android. Note that iDevices do not necessarily utilize GPS, so it could appear that they handle these situations better than Android devices with GPS enforced.

It seems that the problem is not with the OS (forgot to mention I am using Android on Samsung S7 Active) but more likely the Phyphox app, because other navigation apps do take measurements at least once a second and probably even faster. The reception also was fine since the other apps worked correctly.

For now I am trying to run both Phyphox and a navigation app that tracks my location simultaneously. It is less than ideal as I have to count out the seconds passed after I have turned on the tracking, then switch the apps and start collecting accelerometer data. The precision is +/- 1 second and data from two different sources takes longer to process.

Still looking for a solution!
