Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I've uploaded several GPS traces to OSM and previously they were rendered properly in the GPS trail layer. Now they're showing up as dotted lines. I haven't noticed any other trails do this, only ones that I posted. What could have happened?

Check frequency of points setting, if adjustable. or it may be lost signals, Does the area have high building, Cliffs, Ravines or a lot of tree cover. Is the device hidden in a pocket or bag and shaded by that or your body, put it high or a shoulder strap.

This has been noticed before

Mine appear dashed too. We can guess a few possibilities and it will be interesting to see why it happens.

When I downloaded one of @talexhv's gpx traces it looks like this in iD when I tick the 'Local GPX file' checkbox gpx

and when I change the tick to 'OpenStreetMapo GPS traces' instead the same trace shows like this. alt text

For what it's worth I'm seeing a slightly different issue with uploaded traces in iD now.
