    Is anyone else finding that the GPS performance of the Bangle2.js is significantly worse than that of the Bangle.js? I ran this code on the Bangle2 and placed it outside on a south-facing window ledge:

    var max=0;
    var count=1;
    var max_count=1;
    Bangle.setGPSPower(1);
    Bangle.on('GPS',function(fix){console.lo­g(fix.satellites + ' satellites at ' + count + 's, max is ' + max + ' at ' + max_count +'s');if (fix.satellites>max){max=fix.satellites;­max_count=count;}count=count+1;});
    

    After 20 minutes it was seeing 7 satellites, a total which had been reached around 6:30 in and remained consistent from then on. I uploaded GPS data (GPS only) and ran it again; this time it had seen 11 satellites within 2 minutes although the total varied between 7 and 10 until the 20 minutes was up.

    I thought uploading the data was only supposed to decrease time to fix, but it looks like it somehow determines whether the sketchier satellites will be visible at all. For the original Bangle.js you also have a choice of how many days' worth of GPS data to upload, but for the Bangle2.js there is no indication of how long it will be valid for. All that aside, when wearing both watches at the same time and saving a GPS track, the Bangle.js invariably does a far more accurate job.

    Yes, Rewrite Settings did the trick! Thanks.

    Is anyone else unable to update the Settings app? As soon as I try, the time and date revert to 01/01 01:00 (or similar), the watch disconnects, and I have to close and reopen my browser to get it to connect again. This has only been happening since I updated to 2V13. All my apps (including Settings itself) seem to be intact.

    Funny you should mention that but I am using Mario Clock. I have discovered that if I go to the menu before attemping the AGPS update, it works reliably - briefly shows me the Bangle splash screen and then "Uploading assistedgps" with a progress bar.

    Yes, confirmed working for me now, thanks! For the record, I am using v99.0.4844.51 on Linux.

    Uploading AGPS data is still flaky and fails most of the time although I can usually get there eventually. I have tried flipping between the few apps I have installed while connected to the IDE but didn't see any errors. While trying to upload AGPS data just now it showed me a bunch of "OK" lines and then "Uncaught [object Object] at line 1 col 226".
