I use love the Trailforks app and I use it on every ride. I also run two other trip tracker apps at the same time. Trailforks, when compared to my other apps and my partners' apps, is always super high on the elevation ascent data. I usually shows about double of what I actually rode. Anyone else see this on their Trailforks app?

Yes, way off recently. Like 5000 ft compared to friends recording of 1500. I first thought it was a new issue, but now I think it is related to the area I'm riding. All of the really obvious discrepancies for me are at popular SF bay area trails which is a new zone for me. Went back to OR/WA for a few weeks and got normal expected numbers. Now back in SF and it's way inflated again.

For me is not way off but only like 20 - 30% more than real value. I think this is because if you look at elevation profile, you will see lots of small bumps and if you summarize all the bumps you will get bigger elevation.

Are there any plans to improve this feature? Some low pass filter?
