GPS sensor rate - only 1 per 20 sec

First of all, thank you, developers, for this amazing and well-built app!

I am writing because I noticed a peculiarity about the Location sensor. The rate at which my phone takes GPS/Location readings is only 1 reading per 20 seconds. This is an obvious limitation for location based experiments. Since I have not seen any post or info regarding this (and I believe a lot of people would notice the limitation), I suppose the problem could lie in my phone's settings, but I cannot find it. This measurement rate is even output in the exported .csv files. I have also tried creating a new experiment where I combine sensor readings and change the measurement rate, but to no avail.
Is this a known problem or a limitation of the app? And is there a solution?

I would like to create an experiment where I measure the vibrations created by the city tram and correlate them with building deformations. This requires a very fast accelerometer refresh rate and reasonably fast GPS measurement rate.

Thank you in advance!
