|Summary||0000927: incorrect placement of GPS tracks in China|
|Description||I'm using minihomer for tracing my pictures, and this worked perfectly and very accurate in Germany. Since 6 month, I'm in China and facing a much lower accuracy ( GPS data displayed versus real places, error in the range of 200m to 300 m). I thought, the error was due to wrrong GPS data recording and conducted several tests without result.|
No I've used an alternative way for recording the GPS tracks ( GPS tracking ion my smartphone, HTC desire, these data are very accurate, wehn used in google maps directly). These data show exactly the same displacement as the minihomer data! My conclusion: the geosetter must make some miscalculation, when used in China!
Can you please check!

||China restricts using gps|
GPS in China works pretty accurate in principle(at least on the smartphone in combination with google earth)
The displacement is only seen in the maps through geosetter
No Geosetter works perfectly in China.
Google maps is wrong.
-> dipslay the satellite imagery with the street imagery and you will see that the streets are misplaced by about 300m.
Do it directly in google map to convince you.
Work around : display your data using the satelitte imagery only (no street) or openstreet map.
another opton is to complain to google the more complaints the more chance we have to get things fixed
thanks a lot for mentioning openstreet maps, it works perfect with it.
What I don't understand: why do I get an accurate positioning even in China with google maps (street imagery), when I use it on my smartphone in combination with the build in GPS?
