(This test site's reference position known only to within about one meter)

In 20 minutes the 95% error is 2.1m

In 31 minutes the 95% error is 2.6m

Next I waived the unit around to break any automatic position averaging

At 36 minutes, the plot has gone around in a loop (green), 95% error is up to 2.9m

At 48 minutes, the plot has settled down again at about the same place as the early run (red)
(Notice the satellite "trails" as they move during the tests)
