    I'm not driving, I'm "briskly walking" !!!

    So somewhere in youtubes, I seen a comment about disabling this function, butt they're not going to say it...

    So it's true or fake news?

    I'm fumbling around after logging out and clearing the delivery files trying to find where this is...

    Just slow down, you have to be running to get it to go off, happens to me all the time.

    Easily can be disabled takes 6 steps but not going to post how. It probably is a good thing to have on there for most people.

    that or you are under massive tree cover and the gps is having a heck of a time plotting where you are because of crappy LoS to the sky, so when it sees sky, it thinks you just moved at like, 10mph.

    You guys just need to stop running or apply for a job that pays hourly. I understand why most do it, but you guys look absolutely silly running to drop cardboard.

    Yeah I'm not running on my rural route...

    Does it always try to find a signal???

    Some days, I'll have to switch batteries as early as 1400... Then finished my route with 60-70% left on the 2nd battery

    GPS works on triangulation. You need three satellites to get a rough position, the more you have, the finer of a position you get. When it gets more satellites sync'd up is when it starts 'snapping' your position around.

    If you're swapping batteries that often, you have either crappy batteries or really bad cell service.

    Yeah, if you see the original pic, I have no bars on the Verizon network... only if I get to some suburbia and the gated community will I get green bars back

    I know how to check battery health... double tap on the battery icon to see how many charge cycles it went thru. Anything over 200 should be recycled, yes?

    My Garmin GPS units on the windshield, however, are getting better signals than the Motorola power pad. Shrugs.

    Yes but the PPAD uses GPRS(not GPS) which means it uses triangulation based on Cell towers(not Satellite) so with crappy service you'll get battery run down.

    So why is this hourly airline worker running???



    I @$$umed he already scanned and DR the box from his van...

    If he's running late to rtb, couldn't he text or call the terminal?

    maybe he had to take a massive dump or something and it was starting to peak?
