Receiver Location Updates

I have three Raspberry Pi in three locations with basically the same hardware and latest build/packages. I noticed on 1 of them, the My ADS-B Dashboard Location is updated several times a day, the other two don’t update daily, maybe once a month. All three gpsd, ‘gpsmon’ or ‘cgps’ are working great from the console. Any ideas?


I would suspect that one of the sites has an poor gps lock or is suffering from intermittent interference of the gps signal and is therefore reporting its position as having moved.
Do you have logs of the reported position of the affected site over time?

Either your GPS is falsely reporting it’s position as changed or you live on Schwartz’s Island
