    Tom - we have planned a possible enhancement to navigation/routing to track these. Though, I would love to see the GPX and FIT of this activity.

    I'm having what I think may be a similar issue. On a ride last Saturday following a route url imported from 'Ride With GPS' the GPS track was way off the road in several places (enough that Strava didn't recognize several segments) and I got repeated TbT directions to make a U-turn to return to the road I was already on.

    My thought at the time was that it was a combination of intermittent loss of GPS lock (the ride was on a road through a coastal redwood forest and the canopy completely blocks out the sky in spots) and/or GPS location anomalies related to the interference from the trees.

    If HH support wants the route and fit files, send me an email and I'll forward them.

    Ross - I have been working with Tom over this matter and would be interested to see the similarities from your rides. I will follow up with an email to you.

    I get this problem all the time whenever the gps signal is weakened by the presence of trees, buildings, tunnels etc. One time in Italy, the Karoo showed me as 500m away from where I actually was. All gps devices suffer from this a bit but the Karoo is particularly bad. The way to fix it is to turn the Karoo off and do a restart. It then quickly finds its true position. I have complained about this several times but nothing has been done. For me, it is the biggest remaining deficiency with the Karoo.

    Lance - They have several sample fit/gpx files (including mine) and have corresponded since submission. They obviously know about the problem. They made some changes in the last update and have said that more will be coming in the next update to further address the issue.

    I got similar today on my first ride.

    The GPS doesn't appear to be as good as what I had in my Bryton but it seems good enough, in buildings etc you expect poor reception.

    The device should be able to detect incorrect readings, if not by the positions reported accuracy then by the impossibility of the speed or just because we haven't moved when we eventually start riding again and it doesn't pause auto pause again. So between when it first autopaused and last autopaused (without "significant positional displacement") should be removed. 

    In any case I think for major stops I'll be manually pausing in future as the device does a good job of letting you know the status.
