Inaccurate position reporting.

Evenin’ All!! I’m using latest SD version on IPad. Also replicated the issue on my iPhone.

I’ve noticed a considerable lag in the position report on the top of the screen. Attached is an example screen grab. It shows us clearly north of the Middlebrook Stadium VRP but the position report has us south of the VRP. Got pulled up on it today by ATC.

Any ideas?

You appear to be zoomed in quite far on that screenshot. The position report updates once every 1nm unless you're tracking a waypoint explicitly.

Ok thanks Tim. That makes sense and I just figured out that if I want a more precise position I can use “what’s here”
