What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. every time when i record a track
2. switch betwenn statistics an diagram

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
1. If I record a track, a too high total distance is displayed (I walk for 1 km; in the map the recorded track looks good, but the statistic or diagramm the totaly distance is (for example) 4 km.
2. Another error I noticed is when I switch between statistics and diagram. The traveled distance in the diagram grows. If I turn five times back and forth it grows from 1.5 to more than 25 km.

What version of MyTracks are you using? On what version of Android? On what
version 2.0.4

I am not able to reproduce this.
I am running My Tracks version 2.0.4 on Android version 2.2.2. 
Can you tell me which Android version your phone is running on?

To confirm, during a recording, when switching tabs, the distance becomes too large.
What happens after a recording, is the distance large or does it match your expectation?

in this forum some people have similar issues with recording tracks.

during i record, the app records a to  long distance. if i switch during a record between statistic and diagram it looks 'ok'. the app only show the wrong distance. after i stop the recording and switch between diagram and statistics the  distance in the diagram is growing.

I hope I could explain it to understand. My english is not very good.

for example:
I walk one km. During the record the application shows me I went 3 km, Whether I look in the statics or diagram. After stopping the record in the statistic is written 3 km, also in the diagram. after i switched 3 or 4 times the tap. in the statistics is written 3km, but in the diagram it shows 25 km.

The problem seems to be related with how MT6589 chip is presenting the data.
RunKeeper is reported to run OK, so they might figured it out.
Maybe they could share how they have done it ?

Looks like the issue is specific to this phone and this chipset. This is not something we can fix at the application layer.
