Great app overall but I'm having a big problem while using it in trolling (eg fishing). I would need to get an exact speed but now I'm only getting either 2.7 km/h or 3.6 km/h.. makes adjusting the speed quite difficult

Used device:
Nexus 1 with Froyo

+1!
I always wondered why the speed was always 5.3 kmh when I was walking, but actually thought that this was my "fault"...

Hi;

OruxMaps provides the speed calculated by android.

At low speed should not be easy for the GPS calculates the speed correctly. It seems that Android provides only discrete values!

Check with other applications: Gps test, ...

2.7 kmh = 0.75 m/s
3.6 kmh = 1.0 m/s
5.3 kmh = 1.5 m/s

... a very strange Android issue
