Default RE: Lesson Learned the Hard Way: Compass

I have noticed the same thing on my etrek...It will not update as long as you are setting still. Sometimes you have to walk 5 to 10 yards for it to fiugure it exactly where you are at and the direction you are heading. I have had the same trouble dragging a deer with gps...You are not really moving in a straight enough line and fast enough for the gps to update correctly..I normally start walking until it updates and get the genearal direction...then use my compass to keep on that heading for a good ways then refer back to gps..
