csr walker gaynor schoeman

hi all
just having a look at gaynor's progress on her spot-tracker site
and noticed she has done a big zigzag on her walking course but I cant fathom out why
she has made a substanstial double back on her course at an angle back up to where she was but further west and has now come back down again
curious if anyone else has noticed the zigzag
she now appears to be going south again on a steady course
cheers

Hi

Suspect its just one wayward GPS point...wouldn't read too much into it...though would have thought the unit wouldn't send out your position until it had a good fix. Never used one so cant comment further.

Cheers

I think your correct there Greg

Typical computer error. A bit like that one of mine that I mentioned to you where it had me doing something like 266KPH.

If you have a look at the check in times they are within cooee of each other so I think an erroneous GPS Coordinate - makes you wonder though how good they are if they can do that, thankfully there are many other shortly after but what if...

Phil, always thought you were a speed demon :-)

I love the Scan Gauge in my car when it shows 200L per 100 when I put my foot down at the lights.

cheers

All I get is a map that shows the whole length of the CSR. No indication where she is or where she has been. Tried "SPOT TRACKER" Am I doing something wrong ?

hi phil b
I had already checked the csr maps as well as I have an original csr map on my wall and am following her progress out of interest
the
spot-track zigzag that it is showing on gaynor's walk is not part of the actual csr and suspected that the spot tracker system has a problem and I found it hard to believe that gaynor would go along that zig zag it was showing when on a walking trip like it has shown her to have done
unless she was lost or confused
this shows that these things can not be trusted fully
despite all the sales hipe as to how good they are
in sending correct imfo back to your headquarters where someone is monitoring your progress and existence on an hourly/ daily basis

there-fore a satellite phone is still a good thing to carry
but one would need a small solar charger to keep its battery charged
gaynor is doing really great and will probably reach well 41 today ??
and I was just thinking the other lady pam who is walking north cant be that far away from gaynor now either
cheers

Hi all

I've cross checked various CSR plt files I have against various maps and find that the strange zig zag does not exist as a track or short cut.
So I go along with it being a glitch.

cheers

Just a computer hiccup mate.

I have a certain mistrust in computers. Just before I send the GPS email home to the grandkids through the satellite phone I compare its reading with the GPS in the cars dash.
