Default Re: GPSLogger [100% free - 100% offline]

GPS LOGGER is great application, but I've encountered problems with accuracy. In my BB 8900 (with the 5.0.0_rel1728 soft.; GPS LOGGER the ALTITUDE is always inaccurate! For example on TURBACZ MOUNTAIN (POLAND) - official altitude is 1310 m (above sea level), GPS LOGGER showed 1358 m? (I took foto when I was standing close to official signboard at the top of TURBACZ - see attachment). On DIABLAK MOUNTAIN - similar situation - 1769 m (the real altitude is "only" 1725 m). ON LUBON GPS LOGGER showed 1079 m, - mountain elevation is 1022 m.

At any other moutain the results were similar (always from 30 to 60 meters more than real altitude).

What's wrong?
