not that I could see. the vantage V is bad at instantanous speed and GPS overall accuracy. But for some reason it isn't bad at recording the total distance!

i´ve compared three trainings and was running on the same tracks with VV.

blue track taken at 22.01. V2.0.7
red track taken at 23.02. - V3.0.10
pink track taken today (05.03.) V3.1.7
orange track: i´ve put in a track of my m400 aswell (took the gps track in beginning of january)

i dont see much of a difference; overall gps is worse than v800 which was superb but still quite useable.

I’ve not noticed any big difference on the GPS accuracy.

The major change I’ve seen, and not for the better, is that auto calibration with th.e Stryd footpod appears to have been disabled. So, still with no manual calibration, Stryd accuracy is at a level which means there is little point in using it.

My Stryd connected to the Polar BEAT app without me knowing it. In the BEAT app there was a text about calibrating my connected pod after a run. So perhaps you can run on a track and put the accurate distance in the BEAT app if you find your Stryd not accurate enough.

yes but i think the config number is stored on the receiving device...not on stryd

Stryd says that autocalibration of foot pods cannot be turned off with the Vantage V (as of yet)

i wasn't convinced that the autocalibration was previously right (but in hindsight it was)
i thought an errant calibration factor was there so i reset it.
result: wrong pace.
