Hero 5 Black GPS Speed Accuracy

Is there any way to calibrate the GPS properly as mine constantly reports 2-3mph under what both my car and Garmin GPS report.  Love the overlays in Quik, but would love it even more it it was accurate.

 

I know I'm a slow biker, but not THAT slow! ha.

 

I've updated firmware to latest and also performed both Camera Reset and Factory Reset with the same results.

 

Cheers,

Shaun.

Re: Hero 5 Black GPS Speed Accuracy

Thanks Fishy, but as I mentioned I already did a factory reset.  I'm not expecting pinpoint accuracy, but I would expect that it be at least as accurate as my older Garmin Edge, which it's not.
