Why does it take so long to get a GPS signal?
In order to measure your speed accurately, RAMS GPS Dashboards will wait for a high-accuracy signal before your journey can start. This means it will often take slightly longer than other apps to find your locations.
In case it takes you longer than 15 seconds to find a GPS signal, you can disable the timeout in the settings menu to allow more time under tougher conditions.
How accurate is my GPS signal?
GPS performance is dependent on your device, surroundings, and weather conditions. Accuracy to 3 metes is as high as most smartphones can achieve. Rain, cloudy weather, and tall buildings nearby may affect GPS accuracy.
How do I use the GPS signal from my phone on my watch?
Be sure to have the same app installed on both your handheld device and smart watch. Start the speedometer on your phone to begin recording your journey, then start the smartwatch app and tap the phone icon to set the source.
How precise is the weather information?
Weather data is provided from the closest weather station to your location, via the OpenWeatherMap API.
