Default [Q] One X GPS with Sports Trackers

I recently started using Endomondo with my One X (Im new to endomondo anyway!). On my first run i noticed some odd placement of some of the GPS markers on the route i followed. I figured it was just bad signal.

I took both my One X and Nexus one out today, One X in left trouser pocket and N1 in my Right. The N1 does still have some anomalous readings but nowhere near as many as my OneX

Does anyone else notice this with their One X using Endomondo/similar applications

P.S Yes, i know i am horrendously unfit.

Having come from the iPhone 4 (using MotionX GPS) I also downloaded Endomondo last week to give it a try. Did an 8 mile walk with the phone having a clear view of the sky. Looks okay when zoomed out, but if you zoom in to view the route then it looks like I've had 20 pints beforehand and am wavering all over the place!

Haven't had chance to try another program yet to see if it's the phone or the software.

Having similar problem with Noom. Seems to think I have travelled three times the distance, in some cases, simply because of the erratic zig zags. It actually produces reasonable results if I reduce the GPS polling frequency (setting within Noom) to 30 seconds, from the default 1 second.

Has anyone tried endomondo on a different device - do they get the same results.

Out of interest, what Firmware version is your One X which gives these results?

I was still using the official HTC 1.26 firmware when I tracked mine - I'll give it another go now I've upgraded to Mike1986's firmware.

Got the same gps issues using runtastic and Navigon or GMaps.
Found 8-10 satellites, but my position is jumping around.
Hope it is not a Hardwareissue like on transformer prime with tegra3.

Default Return it

I have the same GPS problem in all my GPS apps that are working fine in my old Desire.

The only solution people report in other treads is to return the phone for another copy - I tried that today in my shop - the official HTC shop in Copenhagen - only to be told that I was one day late as they have a 7 day policy, so now my phone has to go away for "repair" a number of weeks
