I was sitting outside a few days ago in front of my house and decided to just check gps, no dongle. my mouth dropped when I got 12/13 sats. The next day I tried again, this time it did fluctuate a lot more but I was getting 4/5 then it would jump to 8/9 back to 4/5 back up. I couldnt believe it. I dont ever use gps on my tablet anyway so it doesnt matter to me either way if it works or not. lol
I have a C5 serial and thats around the same thing that I get too. Using GPS test, I've seen the accuracy go as low as 18 ft outside, usually around 36-72 ft range. Indoors, I have seen it go as low as 36 ft, usually around the 48-96 ft range. Despite all of that, GPS is still useless because once I start moving, Google Navigation can't track me.
Will trying an offline navigation software help me or will I have to resort to the dongle :/
