Getting Runstastic to Track your GPS better

I was having a really hard time getting Runtastic to track my GPS in a nice smooth way, sometimes it was decent, but more and more it was becoming unusable. Runtastic recently updated their support site and in their GPS tips section, recommended shutting off WiFi to improve GPS tracking. I guess that way it doesn't try to do any WiFi based positioning. Here are 2 side by side tracks, one with Wifi on and one with it off.
WiFi On
WiFi Off

So yeah, I would say if you are having trouble with getting a good GPS track with Runtastic on your cell phone, try shutting off WiFi and see it that helps
