BT GPS reconnection time take some minutes
- Android 6 (S4 mini Android 5-8, from cyanogemod up to linageos and experimental builds)
- multiple locus map versions
- iBlue 747 A+
- no GPS Recording
- GPS over Bluetooth
- turn dislplay off for some minutes and power on again
It does take 1-3 minutes until green message "... GPS connected ..." pops up. Normaly I try to force it to speed up by navigating to gps screen, disable GPS and enable it again. But sometimes it does find it without forcing after some minutes.
Sometimes it does show me available parings (only 1 element in list)
Is this normal as an limitation of the old BT 1.2 protocoll and the possible power saving conzepts of the GPS transmitter? I would expect that GPS transmitters are less active if they got disconnected.
Should I try to use an BT GPS app to share GPS with locus Maps instead of using locus GPS implementation?
What are the benefit of locus BT GPS instead of using a special BT GPS app?
I hope there are no details missing. Just ask me for more information.
If you want a debug log, tell me which android version you would like to support. Up to Android 7 is stable for my device.
