    Hi all! Just started using a Nvidia Sheild K1. Very happy with it apart from one issue (so far).

    When I look at flight logs it saves location as a suburb 3 miles away? Even though the map is correctly showing where I've flown. I have flown at a different spot and the suburb was correct for that flight. I seems just this one area, which is my main flying spot is coming up wrong suburb. I tried my iphone at this spot and it saved the correct suburb name. Any idea why this happening? Anybody else had a similar issue? I have installed a GPS app and it works fine and showing exactly where I am and picking up a lot of satellites.

    Any help would be great as it is pretty annoying more than anything.

    Thanks

    Can you post some screenshots/data/logs so we can see what you're describing?

    You would see the same thing with any Android tablet because it's a Google Maps issue and nothing to do with your Shield or your Phantom.
    Your position data is perfect. Ignore the name Google Maps gives to the locality.
    If it bugs you too much fly in different locations till you find one you like.

    That would be the map not the device.

    google maps must name that area whatever label you are seeing
    The device(Shield) does not "name" the locations.

    Apple uses a different map source and may show it the same or differently

    good luck and have fun flying!
