    Default NextGen altitude

    Greetings,

    I was looking for the answer in previous threads but without success. I am using iGO NextGen, 9.18.27.719974 and iGO NextGen 9.18.27.736653, both without any skin. My phone is Samsung A520 F, android version 8.0. Everything works great except one thing. My altitude is completely wrong. I am living in town which is on about 80 m of see altitude. Both of my navigations show about 120m. Is there any chanses to do some correction?

    I checked with few free applications from Google Store, like "GPS Altitude" and I am getting correct datas, +/- 1 meter.

    If anyone of you knows anything about this issue I will appreciate answer.

    Thanks and greetings!

    Hi

    It is a known problem with GPS softs under Androïd OS

    ---> Altitude displayed is 40-50 meters above the real one... So some skins have a correction option for this...

    I do not see anything else to propose :-(

    That's an old problem.
    Maybe [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] will help you to understand

    I put altitude_ari.zip in UX folder but i cannot see any difference. Do I need to ad something in sys file or just to add altitude_ari.zip in UX folder. So far it is the same altitude and i cannot see any additional menu for adjustment or correction.

    Tnx

    I believe the "altitude_ari.zip" file is used only to enable the "Show Altitude in Cockpit" option on the menu, ie just to show it or not.

    In the Pongo Skin instead there is the possibility to adjust the altitude:
