  • A few ways to address Personal GPS Homing Device accuracy issues

     Here are a few ways to address Personal GPS Homing Device accuracy issues for training:

     
    Watch for breaks: Watch for any possible breaks in satellite coverage on the course that might affect accuracy. This is usually easy to spot because track points displayed on a map will suddenly be off-course and are easily distinguished by jagged lines.
     
    Repeat and average: If you’re measuring a specific running or biking course, do it several times and average the results to compensate for any GPS inaccuracies.
     
     
     
    How to carry your Personal GPS Tracker on foot:If you use a GPS Personal Tracker for your outdoor workouts, one of your biggest decisions will be how to carry the Personal GPS Tracker. The simplest way is just to hold it in your hand, if it’s free. Of the number of other different ways to carry a Personal GPS Tracker, the best carry methods will Provide optimal GPS satellite signal reception: Where you work out might dictate how you carry your Personal GPS Tracking Devices. If you live on the plains (flat) without any trees and have excellent satellite reception, you have more options than in the Pacific Northwest (heavy tree canopies). Be comfortable: Carrying a Personal GPS Tracker should not distract you from your workout. However you carry it, it should be comfortable, and you really shouldn’t notice carrying or wearing it.
     
    Here are some different ways to carry a Small GPS Tracker while working out. How you carry a GPS receiver usually ends up being a personal preference. Try a few of these methods to see which one works best for you.
     
    Especially with smaller, lightweight Small GPS Tracker, are one of my favorite forms of no-hands carry. An armband is simply a Small GPS Tracker case mounted to an adjustable elastic band. When worn on the upper arm, the Small GPS Tracker isn’t blocked by your body as much as wearing the receiver at your waist, which means better satellite signal reception. In areas without many sky obstructions, armbands can also be worn on your forearm, so you can look at the screen while you exercise. I use an armband with a plastic case that’s produced by Endless Pursuit. The case fits a Garmin Geko like a glove. After you adjust the elastic band, it’s hard to tell you’re wearing it.
     
    Look for armbands designed for Family Radio Service (FRS) radios. If you’re handy with a sewing machine (or know someone who is), it’s relatively easy to make an armband out of nylon, elastic, and Velcro for your GPS receiver. Cases, belts, pockets, and packs Most GPS receiver cases have a loop on the back to hold the case on a belt. If you’re wearing shorts or tights and don’t have a belt, waist packs for carrying a radio or a cassette/CD player are an option. These packs can accommodate larger GPS receivers. They’re not very noticeable when you’re working out because they’re designed not to bounce much. Small fanny packs and waist packs that carry water bottles also carry a GPS receiver. If the GPS receiver is small, try carrying it in your front pants pocket. I’ve carried a Garmin Geko while running and cross-country skiing in trail-running shorts and tights with zipper pockets. Although satellite reception is sometimes lost while under heavy tree cover, the GPS receiver records track data as long as.
