Hi
when using my phone as a gps tracker i notice that the gps is often behaving very inaccurate for instance in the picture below is was driving the bycicle on the right side off the road and removed my sweater at the red X before continuing my path. The gps said i crossed the road went way offroad and then came back. I also noticed the same behavior when walking around. It tells me im zigzagging accross the street etc. I made sure precise location is on, the apps can run in the background etc but to no avail. I am thinking this is a hardware issue. Or are any other people experiencing the same result?

When i was on a trip in Barcelona i was testing it extensively, i am just walking on one side of the street instead it shows this zig zag nonsense

Weird, this issue does not occur on almost every phone with the same settings. So the Zenphone basically has bad GPS reception and Asus can't or won't fix it?

I am not getting the precision issue on the current firmware version.  But, the direction shown while using maps while walking is wrong by 30 degrees and also GPS takes a lot of time (7-8 seconds sometimes) to activate in all of the apps.
