Weird jumps in recorded route / GPS losing lock?

There are these random jumps to random places being recorded in my rides. Not every ride, but enough to be quite frustrating. Sometimes the distance seems to be recorded in the route and sometimes not. It seems like the GPS is losing lock? What is happening here? Is there anything I can do to prevent it? Is there anything Strava can do to detect and remove these obviously incorrect jumps?

Two samples are shown below. The jumps are circled in black.

 

Thanks!

  • This has happened to me also, and have seen it happen to 2 different friends.  For me, it has resulted in incorrect mileage calculation - sometimes mileage is a little off (like 0.3 mi too much), sometimes it is WAY off (like double the actual mileage).  Not good.

  • Isso acontece constantemente em mais de 50% das atividades físicas que observo entre as pessoas que sigo.

  • 3 of my last 5 activities have this same issue; skewed map, wrong distance and time. Began happening in August 2020 after no issues for many years. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S8 that is fully updated and Strava has worked just fine for years on this phone. Can someone from Strava please respond?

  • I'm on Samsung Galaxy S8.

    On my own, I discovered that Strava has this setting turned off:  Mobile Data --> Allow app while Data Saver is on

    (This is on Samsung S8, sorry I don't know the path on other phones, but you get the idea.)  Since I turned this setting ON, the GPS behavior has been much better.

    Hope this helps.

  • David - Same exact thing for me also with a Samsung S8. 3 of my last 4 runs on my normal route have me going out to two random points (at a 4 min/mi) pace. This started less than 2 weeks ago, though my bike rides are showing up fine.

     

    I've restarted my phone, turned location off and on, and cleared the cache on my app. So far no luck.

  • Sorry, my last post was incorrect. I had yet another crazy GPS track this morning with wild wobbles and several small spikes. The line should be completely smooth, about 2.4 mi.  Strava calculated 3.55 mi because of the wild track.  Back to square one.

  • Only one of my past 6 activities has recorded.  One 4 mile run turned into almost 70 miles because apparently I can run across SF Bay...several times.
