Why do I get extra distance measurement when I first start to row or paddle?

When the SpeedCoach GPS/SUP is powered on, it begins to search for GPS satellite signals. Until the SpeedCoach acquires a strong GPS fix (typically under 2 minutes), the location and speed measurements can be erratic. If the timer has been started during this period, you may see jumps of up to 100m per stroke. It is recommended to allow at least 2 minutes between powering up the SpeedCoach and starting a Just Go session or a workout.
