    Smooth GPS updates no longer

    I recently changed to a different GPS unit and now, whenever, I turn on the GPS Smooth update feature the map jumps every 20 seconds or so instead of smoothly updating.

    If I turn the GPS Smooth update off it works ok, but I lose the smooth update feature - which I love

    I looked at raw GPS data and it seems fine.

    Has anyone seen this problem? Any suggestions on how to fix it?

    Some GPSs seem to perform badly with GPS smoothing. It mostly has to do with how often a particular GPS sends updates that throws it off. Besides using a different GPS, I don't know of any other fixes for it at this time. Developer (I am Chuck)

    I have a bad issue with the stock Microsoft GPS unit (ever since I got it 1 1/2 years ago) that shipped with my trunk mount. I have been through 2 of these and no improvement. Not only that, every 4th or 5th time of resuming from hibernation, it can't seem to find the GPS receiver. Piece of ?? I don't know...
