I am currently using my phone (iPhone) with the Strava app when I record my activities. Sometimes, I get these wildly amazing performances like running running 400m in 33 seconds - a feat I know I can't do, and I have been outdone by many non world record holders. 

What I'd like to suggest is to have "route smoothing" that is automatic (maybe you have to opt in or opt out of the option) and takes out all the irregularities of the inaccurate GPS. I use Adobe products and this is a option in Adobe for vectors, I'm sure this is something that can be coded, perhaps using the native GPS route and refining it or even the cumulation of multiple distances over a regular Route or Segment - i.e. the same street can't be 1.2km for one athlete and 1.4km for another. (this could also apply to groups running together, one athlete running the same route as another is somehow faster or runs longer, often not the case) Perhaps a use case for AI?

I've attached an example from my ride today. That blip would have been a very brief 1 or 2 seconds, at speeds very different from the rest of my ride. Strava GPS idea.png


Hi @SteveinCanada , any chance that the "correct distance" feature could fix this for you? It's on the website (not in the app), when you view a particular activity. 

(and if it works, here is my pending idea to add this feature to the mobile app as well, collecting thumbs up votes - so please vote for it 😇😃)
