If you use high accuracy it works really well and why would you want to answer a phone while hiking ....if you use device only gps it works but not as well on my android. So I guess it depends if you want people to be able to follow your tracks to the bar or not.BobP wrote:@SAMBA
Go to setting..location...mode and make sure gps is set to high accuracy..
Maybe yooz guys shouldn't be so quick to dismiss Joe. My "High accuracy" setting is now working. As the Sisters of Saint Joesph used to say when you asked them a question such as "If God is so powerful, can he make a rock so big he himself can't lift" their stock responses to said question was "It's a mystery". Haz tracks has NEVER worked before, but now it does. It's a mystery!SAMBA wrote:Bartels???? YIKES! Why do I pay any attention to him?

I believe you are referring to this post. If you read carefully you won't find the word "obsolete" anywhere. The iPhone is definitely not a replacement for a handheld Garmin. But some Android devices are getting close. You'll note I said "It's just a matter of time". I believe that to be true. Others may disagree. The Eagle responded with a list of some features where GPS specific devices still have an advantage over phones. But I think those advantages will disappear in the next year or so as phone hardware improves and software is written to address the missing features.chumley wrote:...just like the market for "consumer-grade" cameras has taken a huge hit, the consumer GPS market is going to smart phones. It's just a matter of time.
