Suunto claim to have addressed GPS accuracy issues experienced by some users, see below. Release v126.96.36.1994/10Nov2016
I’ve had some good experiences with GPS accuracy of the existing version <here> so, no doubt, the situation will be made worse for me and better for others 🙂 we shall see. I will say it how I find it either way AND put up the FIT files in a test against ‘something else’. I won’t be able to test this for a couple of weeks due to ‘other work’ and life in general.
Along with HR issues, which again I did not experience, this should resolve some of the more serious bugs affecting some users.
Some significant bugs in the SPORT are also addressed ie making the triathlon mode work properly (will also apply to the ULTRA but it is more important for the SPORT)
There are new features but I would have thought that it would be better to enable the editing of sports modes. I’m not going to play with ANYTHING else until that is done as my time (and yours) is limited.
