Sometimes when I do an "extended" request then follow this with a "simple" request, for some vessels the simple request will return an older timestamp than the extended.

Response included the same ship (512003252) but with timestamp: 2017-09-11T03:45:47
Is this a bug with the API? Is it not find the latest data point in the last timespan minutes?
Is the rest of the data that comes with the older response also older? (i.e. is the lat/lng position of the extended response more accurate because the timestamp is later?)
