While testing a WRT widget, a GPS tracker that posts its data to the internet,
I was astounded by the difference in results the phones gave me.
I activated the tracker on both phones on the same point and same time, kept them
each in one of my hands while driving in the car, a couple of kilometers away,
and disabled them at the same point and same time to go see what the results were.
I was so extremely pleased with the results of the N97 Mini, I could jump a hole
in the roof. But then, a thundercloud came over that made me not-want-to.
The N97 had only drawn a couple of measly lines, and returned a load of inaccurate
locations to the server, where the mini had been working flawlessly.
This raises a couple of thoughts.
Is my N97 malfunctioning?
Is the GPS receiver in the N97 different from the N97 Mini?
Does my widget cause this behaviour? (exactly the same versions on both)
I must honestly say I'm quite unhappy with the N97 anyway, wish I could exchange
it for another mini, or maybe the N900. (Does anyone know if I can?)
Here are the testresults:
The blue line is the N97 Mini, the red are the N97.
Compare and fall off your seat.
