How accurate is Location.distanceTo() ?

Postby jymdman » Tue Jun 01, 2010 9:04 pm


I'm developing a program that needs to measure the distance I walk and I use Location.distanceTo() to calculate the distance between two points.
So my question is how often I should calculate when moving?
I guess every meter is wrong as the accurancy never gets down to 1 meter??
Will listening to updates every 5 meters do a better job, or even a higher number??

Views ant thoughts are welcome!
