Re: Pie vs Pi

PS> one more note (based on your "Subject" line) - sadly, Android Pie (9) is a lost release for stumbling due to some questionable Google policy decisions; we strongly recommend either using Oreo (8) or disabling "Scan Throttling" in "Developer Options" on Android 10 and 11 to get good Android stumb...

Re: Pie vs Pi

it depends on what you want to do! you can load a Pi up with a lot of great wifi radios and likely get more data, but the effort and complexity increases, and so does your required (initial and ongoing) input of effort. Pros: Swap-able power banks Cost is whatever you want to spend As many of powerf...

Re: This weeks Android issue

unusual - the app should request permission explicitly (and modally) if it can't use the GPS.

if you wouldn't mind sharing, (feel free to use PMs/email), with what Android versions and device did you see this problem?

Re: i can't download the KML from my upload

this is an extremely unorthodox file, but KML export should work. Can you tell us 1. How you're trying to access to the KML file 2. what behavior you're observing? I'll note that no visualization system we're aware of will be able to handle a KML file this large. For the sake of privacy, please feel...

Re: Crash in 2.54 uploading from android 4.4.4

good catch - boneheaded mistake by yours truly - OKHttp (the square-maintained HTTP library we use for API stuff) upgraded to min-SDK 21 / android 5, which broke our backward compatibility. I've reverted the change here , it will be fixed in the next release. in the meantime, just keep stumbling, th...

Re: Waiting for GPS sync (tested on 2 different devices)

sorry to hear that; we've had a few isolated reports like this, but never anything reproducible on a more than individual scale. Some things that would help: 1. Android version(s) 2. location settings - how did you verify app access 3. Testing location/local 4. carrier 5. devices 6. your location Ob...

Re: How accurate is the cell tower location data?

Cell tower location accuracy depends on measurements for each tower. They tend to be reliable (vs. WiFi, which can move and vary more easily). The "API" menu item under tools has the programmatic access for data. There is no CSV mode. The WiGLE WiFi Wardriving android app allows you to access your o...

Re: What percentage of networks are 5GHz?

That's a good question, but there's a lot of nuance beyond a simple percentage answer; it depends on the location, when it was covered, and by whom. We've avoided making blanket statistics about it because it's so equipment-sensitive and because it would require significant work to figure out how to...

Re: New Stumbler with some questions about the Wigle project!

a lot of items to respond to here, so I'll keep this short - some of these are probably threads in their own right! 1. the graph certainly suggests multi-path propagation error *or* an external pattern of interference. It might be worth running that same experiment on different channels, as well us ...

Re: Permission for using WiGLE tiles for contributing to OpenStreetMap

certainly not opposed to it - we're big fans of OSM! a few questions, since we're not in-the-know on the terminology: 1. We're certainly usable as a "signal" - but it's important to know that our designation of "free" or "pay net" is pretty arbitrary. Is that ok? 2. is our EULA compatible with exist...
