Default Qstarz margin of error

So I was bored and was looking at my lap times from a few track days compared to my racing lap times than to what track intel says. I have noticed that the qstarz and what the my nhms site says are different by a good margins. Not seconds but close. I have the little red Qstarz the 5hz one I believe. So anyone else's times off?? Just curious... Btw you could measure my times on a sun dial

GPS is only acruate to a range. Normally 3-5 feet. So you’ve got a 6-10 range per lap.

Looking at 2 laps your start line then could 12-20 feet apart.

Just means you need to go faster. They're more accurate at higher speeds

This is true. I've had my QStarz and Transponder have been accurate to the 0.000
