I was flying locally today, not realising that the Android version had been updated to s. Because we were in a big blue hole, I was motoring to the clouds, and the Glidebar indication was increasing as expected.
After a few minutes it was showing over 1000 ft above glideslope to get Home with +600 ft, then suddenly it changed and showed that I was below glidesope.
Over the flight this happened, seemed to correct, and repeated several times. The distance and heights did not change when this happened,so it could only be something going wrong in the calculation. It happens in replay.

Arrival height depends of 4 value :
- Current Altitude
- Distance to Target
- Target Altitude
- MacCready settings

so check your AutoMC settings ...

if you can replicate in replay, please share your settings and igctrack and procÚdure to replicate...

You are correct Bruno, when this happens Mc suddenly increases to around 10. I hadn't noticed that, because I had been on manual previously in v. p, so not expecting it. Auto Mc sertting was Both Final+Average. Running the same logger file, with Auto Mc off, it does not happen. Thanks.
