Add ability to disable airplane mode for livetrack ping (re-enable when request completes)
I am planning a trip for later this year where battery life will need to be conserved as much as possible. I'm planning on using Locus Map for offline GPS maps, but it would also be nice to be able to ping my livetrack server with my location (every hour or so). The problem is, If I'm not in airplane mode, my phone drains battery muy rapido when airplane mode is off. It would be a cool feature to have the ability to let the live tracking pings temporarily turn airplane mode off, make the ping, then turn it back on. It would look something like:
Edit live tracking, a checkbox setting exists that says something along the lines of "Allow temporary disablement of airplane mode, if enabled, while ping requested"
In live tracking, check to see if airplane mode is enabled
If yes, temporarily turn it off, send the request once connection is made (within a reasonable timeframe, maybe a setting in the edit live tracking section as well), then re-enable airplane mode.
I know there was another thread that requested you add the ability to completely disable airplane mode when locus started, and I agree that that should be something the user does, but this is a specific battery saving feature that would be nice to have, and can only be done if Locus Map implements it.
