I suppose using a 5Hz GPS receiver brings a high amount of data processing.
Personally, I own a N95 8Gb, which is quite powerful in the Nokia smartphone range, but I really do not have any idea on the impact of RaceChrono on it. Is the N95 CPU powerful enough ? Does the bandwidth between the phone and GPS receiver wide enough ? Is there any bottleneck, if so, which one ?
Do you know if the hardware of some smartphones is a little bit short, if so, could you give us a matrix with recommendations about which kind of smartphone is good for a 5Hz GPS receiver, which one is known to be good only for 1Hz, etc.
My question comes from something I noticed when testing statically my new 818X. When running a fake session, I switched to Live Timer, and started to look at the "GPS time" counter. I figured out it wasn't regular, sometimes freezing... I do not know what the reason is, but I though it may be due to the difficulty to process data at the right speed.
