    GPS receivers don't work well indoors . Take it outside, where it will have access to signals from satellites in various directions, then it will perform better.

    thats normal it seems, the tracking isnt mm perfect so it can vary by meters each sample of sat position...which can be read as movement.

    which can throw a trip computer is you have a long drive and stop at alot of lights, it might be longer there or back even if you travel the same roads

    once you are moving it seems to be pretty good...

    at least thats what i get with mine

    Amazing what you can get when you pay attention.

    And to confirm, the apparent motion, especially when indoors, is normal.
    I believe it's due to poor communication with satellites, so you're getting readings from different satellites that are show your location as slightly different, which would indication motion.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
