Re: Proper GPS location of AP's

Vistumbler has always mapped access points where they had the highest signal position. if you are only walking a line your only going to get the spot where the access point had the highest signal on that line. to get a better position of the AP you would have to walk closer to the AP. The is a featu...

Re: The website uploader has a number of issues

Does the computer go to sleep when it sits for a while? My guess it would loose connection to the gps if it did, but then think it was still connected.

Also, if i remember correctly... I though gps was more accurate when moving. when sitting still it tends to wander I thought.
