I always give it a few minutes after supposedly finding satellites to calm down. Have a look at some of my traces from Jacobs a few weeks ago when I just went as soon as it acquired them!

yeah but over 1.5km out seems a bit drastic

Yeah it does a bit. Even the City to Surf last year only put me 240m over. I had turned the GPS on an hour before the start but we think the buildings interfered with the reading.

yeah but 240m on 12km run is 2% which would be within a tolerance I would expect - and if you did a longer distance then its definitely fine.

My variance is 5.5% thats starting to be significant.

So it's not within budget parameters?

correct :P

Maybe it's your old chain that's causing the discrepancy. If it's stretched to 1.0, that'd probably add around 5% to your distance.
