How to adjust the accuracy in GPS Location Recorder

GPS Location Recorder is using the GPS module in the the phone to receive GPS signals.

In general more expensive phones or newer phones has better and more accurate GPS modules then cheaper or older phones.
That means that if you have a new phone then you may get more accurate data when recording a location or a route compared to if you have an old phone.

Check accuracy
Screen 1
To check how accurate the GPS is in your phone you can look at the value for «accuracy» in this screen:












 
In this example the accuracy is 5, that is 5 meters. A low value for accuracy is typical for more expensive phones. For a cheap phone this value may be 30-40 (meters).

Improve accuacy
If you have a low value for accuracy on you phone you have the option to improve the accuracy of recorded locations and routes for GPS Location Recorder.

To improve the accuracy then go to «Advanced Settings» and after that choose «GPS signal accuracy».
Screen 2
 
Screen 3






If for example the value of accuracy is never above 20 in screen 1 then you can set this value to «20 meter».
If the value of accuracy is never above 30 in screen 1 then you can set this value to «30 meter».

Now the GPS accuracy in GPS Location Recorder should be better then it was before (it was default set to 40 meter).

Countries using mile and not kilometer as unit of length


Lately I have continuously improved my latest Android app,
GPS Location Recorder
. One feature with the app is to track the distance you are going/cycling/driving etc.


In the beginning I only supported meters/kilometers as unit of length as most countries use this unit. 

But I also want to support miles as unit of length. But which countries us miles?
Only three countries according to this Wikipedia page.
Only United Kingdom, United States og Canada.
