[Loadstone] Dear Monty, Sean et al,

I have just completed a test run using the Royaltek 2300 and Loadstone v.
0.69.OS60. I saved the log file and pulled it into a Loadstone formatted
file combining it with four corner points as I walked at something between
2.5 and 3.0 mph around a block. I have added orientation to the Loadstone
file to show how the Royaltek is reporting the progress. 

The result is a dizzying one! It one moment I am progressing along nicely in
a northeast direction when suddenly I appear to swing Southeast when I know
I kept on walking. 

Could this be due to my walking speed or even to slowing down? Has it
anything to do with the famous satellites?

I would really appreciate hearing your views.

When I have completed this work I would be happy to report the whole
exercise to you and to the other loadstone uses.
Since I probably cannot attach a file to this message I will cut and paste
it below;

This starts at my gate and turns South on Meath Road ("meath out" in the
table)
Turns down Convent Avenue in an easterly direction ("conv" in the table)
Back along Strand Road ("Strand" in the table)
To the left up Victoria Avenue ("Vict" in the table)
and back down Meath Road ("ret Meath" in the table) to my gate and West to
the front door.

I only stopped to record the corner points but the log shows that I seem to
spin around in the middle of the long runs! 

All opinions welcome!

All the best,
