Nexus 5X Side facing gps flips out when stopped

Edit: This isn’t a real issue it’s just user error!

Using Nexus 5x. Mapillary version=389(3.89)

I posted my phone in the right window of my car. When in automatic capture mode and the car slows down and stops the camera takes a burst of images (sometimes nearly 20!) usually in the same spot. Each of these images have semi-random directions. After the car starts moving again the images are fine.

EDITED: The actual issue is caused by the timer based capture enabled instead of distance based capture.

Have you tried the minimums in the settings ?

I checked the settings on the phone again and this is a false bug report. I had capture photos based on time set (each second) instead of distance based thus creating what seemed like a burst of shots when stopped. Sorry for the trouble! I’m editing my post accordingly and mods are free to delete if they wish.

It happens to the best. But we don’t call one picture/second a burst.

@3vivekb No worries! Glad it was a “fake issue” :slight_smile: I won’t delete since as @filipc said, it happens to all of us, so it might be useful for someone to stumble upon and read this just for a reminder.
