    Hmmm…. I’m still having trouble getting attachments to stick. Let’s try again.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have done a bit more experimenting.

    In my first post, I should have mentioned the settings I used:
    GPS Accuracy: Highest
    Required Accuracy: 10 m
    Minimum Distance: 1m
    Minimum Time: 1s
    Using the built in GPS receiver (no external unit). I was recording the track with PE running on screen. Also experimented with wifi both on and off; made no difference.

    I updated to the latest version of PE (2.1.1) and the latest iOS (7.1.2) and recorded some more tracks. I found the same tendancy for the track “snap” to a line on some streets when recording a track with two iPhone 5 at the same time. They independanly laid almost the exact same line. It is very repeatable, where it does occur, it does almost every time I record a track, day after day.

    However, an iPad Air, also recording at the same time, recorded the track perfectly. The track showed the variation one would expect with independent overlapping GPS tracks, with none exactly overlapping another. I have found that the Air tends to record very smooth tracks compared to the iPhone 5. Perhaps the M7 chip provides some location assistance using accelerometers to smooth out some of the GPS readings.

    I think you’re right, and I will have to download the entire country before I leave for my trip to be sure that I cache all the maps I need, it just seems a bit inefficent.  Though anything you could do to patch the regions would be fantastic!

    Thanks for all your hard work!  It shows and we really appreciate it!

    Now that I noticed the issue, I am finding that it does not seem to be limited to this one area.  There are areas in the northern regions of British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec that are similar.  When selecting them for downloading, the highlighted area does not cover the entire province.  Is it possible to modify these download areas to extend them to the borders of the provinces?
