Garmin Fenix 5 GPS accuracy issues?
As I have said a number of people are talking about the GPS accuracy of the Fenix 5 series and based on my use and tests the Garmin Fenix 5 series is pretty accurate when you are talking about GPS. I am unsure what people are measuring a device that is 51mm in size with a consumer grade GPS chip with? Sure you can get better GPS accuracy with another device, but we are talking military grade or aviation grade GPS tracking chips and you are not going to get this in a device that is around £500.
The bottom line on the Garmin Fenix 5 series it tracks well and will work for many that want a good GPS track and to know where they are in the world when outdoors. But if you are are the type of person that need to know which lamp post you managed to run around or which bin you avoided then you are going to be disappointed. If you require better GPS tracking then I suggest you strap one of these to your wrist and let me know how you get on!
