When GPS signal drops G-Force also drops

I noticed in a bunch of my data that when the GPS signal drops on my Pixel3 the G-Force data also appears to be lost. Is there a reason for that behavior? Seems like the G-Force data should be able to continue to be captured from the accelerometer.

Is the process for this serial? If one thing in the chain of local sensors fails does the whole thing retry until there's valid data?

    The G-force channels you see under the GPS, are calculated from the GPS. You can also enable the internal sensors for real data but currently it's not rotated to lateral/longitudinal plane, so it's rarely useful. We are currently working on real and rotated G-force data for a future version.
  • Oh really. I guess that makes some sense, and I guess also makes it an average approximation at any given time?

    Yep, it's averaged to smooth out the noise. It works pretty well with a good GPS.
