Currently we are seeing fluxuatoin between GPS derived data and MLS data due to a very short timeout (kDefaultPeriod == 1s). Basically what is happening is GPS sometimes takes more than 1 second to return a position. In this case, we might switch back to providing a MLS location. We should use something longer than 1s. I have been playing around with 5-10 seconds and do not see this flux problem any longer. I am picking 10s mostly because I want to give GPS as much possible time before hititng MLS for a much less accurate position.
