Hi David, Frequently, the GPS signal is the problem independent of echo or occlusion - the phone reports "I've got a great fix" when in fact it's total garbage. It varies widely by phone model and location. We have a little library of techniques to correct it - send us a transid in PM and we can sho...

The app should download automatically from the Play Store according to your network connectivity preferences. If you're looking to update the Android system software or Google libraries, your mileage may vary - Android system software updates are released by your phone vendor and Google library vers...

Hi Dave, Thanks for the feedback. Our experience has been inconsistent GPS/driver behavior under android is responsible for the mast majority of these cases. Generally, rather than reflections, we receive high-reported accuracy, high signal-strength data which is simply incorrect. We have means of d...

Short answer: it varies by phone! There's a "sweet spot" where you don't overheat your phone, don't exceed your ability to write to the database and update the display, but maximize the number of measurements you take, which varies by device and drivers.

well, that's grim. As a point of comparison, do you happen to have the older phone, and can it run the new version of WiWiWa? It would make a check/rule out environmental-local elements (and isolate it to phone model/OS version/other device-specific factors). Thanks for the detailed info and sorry f...

Hi PhattyMo, Excellent post! Sorry about the forum code formatting - extra newlines can help, but we should really figure out how to get better code formatting into this forum package. To answer your questions: 1. the app version is effectively the file format version, so keeping that consistent is ...
