Beyond 100 in a spot or two in sum!

ok, I think the accelometer looks ok. but the magnetic field is indeed very strange. Today I tested it too.. but there was no special effect to the magnetic field.
Maybe ask your bike vendor if the bike emmits electromagnetic radiation. If yes, it's totally ok that your magnetometer on your phone mesures this. If not, there might be another reason.
But sorry, I can't give you more informations or ideas. But if I think about something possible I'll notify you.

Sorry, I checked your accelometer graph again. You calculated the sum the wrong way. The actual way to calculate it is:

sum = √(a₁ + a₂ + a₃)

And with that you get this graph:

Interesting update: with no headphones plugged in, the skipping does not occur. I started a playlist through the built in speakers and after a very fast drive it was on track to the second.

I'm guessing the magnetic field generated by the alternator is causing induction feedback in the headphone wires. Otherwise I'm stumped.

why didn't you mention or quote me? I would have been able to answer... but I didn't get any notification. Yes.. maybe, because this graph was quite strange. You can make an isolation with another magnetic field that compensates these fluctiations.

i am so glad i found this post. i just got my one and am having the exact same problem. i even have htc sending me a new pair of headphones. i was going to try using my old s3 headphones but the one wont even recognize them when i plug them in.

i have to say, all your graphs and math is way to much for me. all i know is my phone hates my motorcycle. whats really weird is, i can make it on the streets to the fwy. its once i get on the fwy that things go all skippy.

did you ever find a solution?

I didn't get a notification about this post. Solution is to use almost any other headphones for anyone else having this problem. The Beats buds that shipped with the m7 Beats model have flat wires which as a general rule are much more susceptible to electrostatic interference.

That is kind of what I did. I got a pair of skull candy headphones without the mic. Hard to find a pair without the mic. They still have a flat cable but work great.
