Tip of the Day 12/6:Hula Wave

In this week’s post for Geo-Jargon Monday,we’ll discuss the Hula Wave.

A Hula Wave occurs when…

Some GPS receivers (mostly Magellan units) automatically engage in a location-averaging function when they detect that the unit is moving slower than a certain speed. To avoid this,the “hula wave”is used. This involves holding the unit to your extreme right,then quickly moving it to your extreme left (or vice versa). The unit will detect this as movement greater than the prescribed speed limit for averaging and will temporarily turn averaging off.
