Thank you for your reply!
1) I hope you mean 8-byte and not 8-bit indeed
If it is 8-byte, then we are safe.
(8 byte signed integer ranges from 9223372036854775808 to 9223372036854775807, so even if i store 1 point every second permanently, it will take me 292471208 centuries (!!) to run out of range
2) Thank you for your explanation on the GetTripUrl. I think I have found the problem and it is in our server.
3) The lowest point on dry land (with the possibility of GPS reception) is the shore of the Dead Sea, shared by Israel and Jordan (nice trivia
). It is 418 m (1,371 ft) below sea level. So if you pick -1000 mtr. you will be safe
. But also thanks for your hint regarding vertical accuracy! I will implement this right now.
Good to hear that there is going to be a new version of the app real soon. Can you give me a hint if there is also a solution for the gps-update bug for iPhone 5 devices (bug mentioned by simonog in viewtopic.php?f=7&t=418
. I also suffer from this bug)?
