GPS sensor rate - only 1 per 20 sec

Could you provide us with the OS and phyphox version. Do you enforce the use of GPS satellites in phyphox? What are the OS Settings in Privacy & Safety > Location? Could you reproduce the low rate with the dedicated Location/GPS experiment?

A higher rate than 1Hz is rather unlikely as GPS quite drains the battery, which is prevented in smartphones as much as possible. Also we cannot judge if your other navigation apps use some extrapolation algorithm to “assume” a position. I take it as granted that you have tested phyphox against other navigation app on the same track…

There is simply no setting in the API to speed up the readings, just to slow these down – that we don't.
