Poor gps reading Dual 150

Post by gaskleppie » Fri May 03, 2019 9:43 am

Hi,
Last week I tried my Dual150 again at Zandvoort after lying in the drawer for two years.
Connecting was no problem. I put it in the middle of the dash with open view to the sky and waited for 5 minutes before driving to let the dual find the satellites.
But while driving I all really noticed poor gps readi g and during several laps it kept on having problems receiving gps position.
After 5 laps I stopped and disconnected the dual to go on with the internal iphone 10 gps which was pretty accurate.
Is this a common problem nowadays with the dual 150?

I see there is new firmware. Can I safely install the 4.1 firmware?

Ok....
my old firmware was 1.1.2! So lots of things are changed in the last few years.
I have updated the firmware to 4.2.0 so first lets see what that does.
I’l keep you informed!
