@theguyfromthesummit I’m in Munich and use GPS+Galileo - works just fine. But when out in the mountains I’m not really picky.
@theguyfromthesummit in challenging terrain usually the more the merrier as satellites are often obscured by terrain features but I wouldn’t expect wonders. Also, you might want to wait a little longer pre-start for better initial GPS reception.

so I test GPS+Glonass first
Usually I wait till the GPS symbol stops blinking, shouldn’t that be enough?
@theguyfromthesummit in my opinion - it should. But somehow if you wait for like 30s to a minute, it usually makes track better in the first 15 minutes of workout or so.
Personally I’d like the UI changed in regards of how GPX fix is being displayed from no fix / fix to no fix / fix / good fix.
When I have time, ie when driving by car to location, I often go to location / my location and leave the coordinates open for 15 minutes which should be enough for the watch to get current almanac. I never experienced tracking problems on trails after such preparation.
I just checked the GPS track of my hike 3h later and it is really nervous. The route my girlfriend tracked with her forerunner 945 was completely clean.
I did a softreset und used the Galileo combination.
It got even worse…
Waiting longer + using GPS Beidou combination is even worse…
I am rather clueless right now.
@theguyfromthesummit I have the same wobbling track, seems as if I am drunk. Posted it some weeks ago in the S9P real world data forum here. No matter what GPS settings I use.
I thought or was hoping, that the peak has a better gps track…
Sorry to hear that.
So you just live with this?
@theguyfromthesummit I use my Apex Pro or Vertix…more reliable/pausible track recordings. Sometimes I wear the S9P too when I want ETA/ETE for a predefined track which Coros does not offer up to now. Maybe this will change soon…
BTW I live near Garmisch.
@_marcus_ Ah dann kann ich auch Deutsch schreiben Also schon fast ganz weg von Suunto.
Liebäugl selbst immer mit einer Garmin, aber bleib dann doch wieder bei Suunto.
@theguyfromthesummit von Suunto weg als tägliche Uhr bin ich seit 2019, als ich dann schlussendlich doch enttäuscht war von der S9B. Es waren Hoffnungen da, die man natürlich nicht hätte haben dürfen. Bin dann zur Fenix 6x Pro damals gewechselt. Seit Sommer letzten Jahres dann zu Coros gekommen wegen der genialen Unterstützung des Stryd Footpod. An die S9P bin ich sehr günstig gekommen und hab sie zum Spielen geholt und um zu schauen, wie Suunto sich so entwickelt…aber meine Favoriten sind Apex Pro und Vertix
@_marcus_ oh cool! Nice places you have there, I’m going up the Alpspitze in a couple of weeks.
@dmytro nice, hope you find a day with less people which way do you go up? Via Ferrata?
@_marcus_ yup. Yeah, I’m going up from the valley, so I’ll start the ferrata itself relatively late when people aren’t that abundant anymore.
@_marcus_ said in GPS normal?:
Bin dann zur Fenix 6x Pro damals gewechselt
Maybe I switch back to English, so nobody feels left out haha.
All in all I am satisfied with my S9B, but the problems are increasing…
Have you tested the Fenix 6x Pro and S9B regarding tracking reliability? (better GPS track, ascent etc.?)
So now I checked some old data and it looks like, that Suunto did something with the software… in a bad way
2020 everything was fine
2021 GPS track is wobbly and looses the signal
The comparison clearly shows, that something went wrong in 2021. A friend of mine also recognized a drop in performance since July.
@theguyfromthesummit no, I only did a direct comparison with the Apex Pro and S9P wearing both on my arms.
@theguyfromthesummit by the way, why don’t you try snap to route if a “good” track is of importance to you? Or you don’t use predefined routes?
Sometimes I change the route during the run and so snap to route won’t work.
Even during a race the actual paths was different to the gpx track and messed up the data using snap to route.
I just want the old performance back
