Pit stop feature not working in iOS app? (and bad GPS)

Post Pit stop feature not working in iOS app? (and bad GPS) 
So my team ran Buttonwillow Lemons this past weekend. I decided to use an iPad mini 4 as a display device for my racecapture track in the car. Well, like in the past (even running Android tablets), the pit stop feature isn't cleanly entered and exited automatically. I needed to reset the app and the race capture track to get it back to normal. Here in the youtube video you can see when we come to a stop it enters the pit stop mode showing random numbers where the timer should be and it never exited.

It was like this every time we entered the pits.

Also, and I don't think this is the app but rather my racecapture track device, the GPS data being streamed to Podium Live was pretty inaccurate.

Turn on a few laps here and you can see what I mean (just look at the reported lap times). The lap timer didn't work in that the times were off, it would take multiple laps to trigger a "lap" and we'd lose random OBD channels like temp while the others still worked. I was streaming live video from the same hot spot which was working fine, I don't think the hot spot connection was a problem.

You can see where I have the RaceCapture Track mounted in the video, on the right side strapped to the roll bar. Now I know this isn't the *perfect* spot, but the GPS satellite data (I checked it by connecting it to Harry's LT) looked ok when I was in the pits at least. 10+ satellites, GPSQual of 3, etc.

Based on the Podium data, is my Racecapture Track just bad? I did get one of the early kick starter ones, not sure if there were any early production issues. At this point its simply unusable between the flaky behavior of the app and poor quality of the data. Looking for any tips that might help. Willing to send in the unit for a look if that's easiest.

Is pit stop known to have issues on iOS like I experienced? Likewise does my raw GPS data on Podium just look bad or is there some other cause for the inaccurate lap timing?
