    Default iGO Primo-Distance to next maneuver not displayed properly-2 to 3 times more than it really is

    I have set up distance to show Kilometers/meters.

    While using the navigation I noticed that distance to next maneuver is three times that of what's it really is.

    For example:
    iGO displays 300 meters when it is around 100 meters, or
    50 meters when it is around 10-15 meters

    Route distance from city to city is displayed properly in kilometers.

    I tried at least dozen iGO primo versions and nothing seems to help. I'm using iGO on Android 4.4.2 (LG G2)

    Please help me fix this.

    Sounds interesting...
    But what about announcements/voice guidance? is it happening at exact distance?

    It announces the wrong distance also.

    You just see sharper drop in distance as you approach next maneuver as if you were going three times the speed you really have.

    Everything, navigation program , you can try, you will have the
    Same results! In your device!

    1)The problem , comes from the "accuracy" from the satellites and from your GPS receiver!

    So don't care about this!

    Sattelites gives a wrong delay signal , which give us(+- 10 m wrong distance)
    But its MORE than 10!!!!!
    And !!!
    You must count and our GPS receiver errors
    Which becomes more bigger from the first "Satellites errors"!


    2) the second problem is the Urban Canyon

    FOR MILITARY REASONS!!!

    If I understood you correctly, you are saying that my phone is the problem.

    I don't know.
    My position on the map is correct at all times and GPS signal is strong. If I don't look at the distance and do not listen to voice guidance, navigation works perfectly.

    Device is receiving signal ever few seconds which is with little dot which is always behind vehicle symbol (arrow or other) when moving.
    That is last "real" position detected and it generates some delay.
    Another delay is generated by device performance (it takes some time to process all data) and when text is spoken (takes some time) you moved closer to maneuver point.
    If you use skins, premium DEM and some other UX utilities, that additionally slows down program, so more delay.

    Try same thing with minimum program installation, without DEM, speedcams, POIs, buildings and skins.

    Then !
    You don't understood me!!!

    Smartphones GPS receiver couldn't have BETTER acurracy!!!
    And
    GPS signal give to us for military reasons wrong position....
    And the biggest problem are the buildings (urban Canyon)!
    The problem is NOT YOUR PHONE!!!!
    Also
    The expensive GPS receivers with monthly assistance have the better accuracy
    Because they use L1 AND L2 bands from gps signal.
    But we use them for topographic of places , buildings etc
    Not for navigation!!

    HOW MUCH MORE ANALITICALLY CAN I SAY IT?

    If only displaying is wrong, it would be the slow response of your skin or the speed (baud) connection of your GPS receiver. Are you using GPS (US sats) or GLONASS? If GPS then "selective availability" has been turn off a long time ago so accuracy is same as military. I don't know about GLONASS.

    I'll try to set it up without skins but...

    If I stand still (5-10 minutes) on the beginning of the street that is 100 meters long it displays next turn is on 300 meters. I don't know how that can be caused by bad connection.

    It's like it displays distance in feet and just attaches meters unit.

    You set your unit under Settings->Region correctly to meters/kilometers?
