Default New galaxy 6, iphone 6 gps

I tried to research how fast my new Samsung s6 active gps is but cannot find info anywhere.

I am thinking if the racecapture kickstarter does not go through I may just use Harrys lap timer with my Samsung s6. But do I really need an external GPS? It just says "GPS, A-GPS, Glonass, BeiDou".

My Samsung s4 had some problems while in track not recording times right.

Unless things have recently changed all phone GPS are 1hz.

You can test this by installing a lap timing app (I use racechrono) and looking at the GPS stats.

Thanks, I used racechrono and it sucked with my samsung 4. It would count 2 laps as 1 a lot. If racecapture doesnt come through I'll buy one of your gps units.
