Speed is substantially incorrect at times


The speed is substantially wrong in some places in an exported video and exported logfile. It looks very correct most of the lap, then in some places slowly drops too low and then (via magically high acceleration) picks up to the correct speed again. I'm very unhappy not to be able to trust the logfile data.

Would be very grateful if this could be looked in to.

    @MagnusThome Hi Magnus,

    RaceChrono data is only as good as your GPS is able to produce. This data comes from your GPS, and RaceChrono just saves and displays that data. BT-Q818XT is quite old receiver, and there are better ones available. Maybe consider purchasing Garmin GLO which will produce much better data, as it is locked to GPS as well as GLONASS satellites.

    With careful GPS receiver placement you can sometimes improve reception, but on a powerful car like yours, and GPS behind the windshield, your BT-Q818XT receiver will always have problems like you're having now...
