Galileo – 935, Fenix 5 Plus Accuracy Update

I’ve probably spent a little too long recently looking at GPS (GNSS) plots of numerous runs that I’ve done, attempting to see if GPS+GALILEO offers any improvements over GPS-only or GPS+GALILEO. In hindsight, the inordinate amount of time I spent looking at google map plots would have suggested, in itself, that there is no obvious…
