No detailed track recording / number of points

LocusFriend shared this question 10 months ago

Dear Locus Team!

What is the exact config for a mtb profile to get an high resolution track? My locus will not write much points!

5m OR 5s is your preferred configuration right? I rode one hour with 8.6 km and the output was 36 points?

Thanks for any Help!

writing trackpoints depends on more attributes than just the distance and time interval set in your recording profile. Also required GPS accuracy is important - what is your setting? If it is 30 or more meters, the recording shouldn't be influenced by GPS unit deviations in bad terrain/weather conditions. There can be an issue with battery optimization of your device that can secretly switch your GPS off running in background. Try some of following tips:


Hi Michal!

thanks for your input! I tried already things you mentioned.

- GPS Accuracy within the locus map settings / tracking profile is set to 100m

- Locus Map Pro is in the exception list within the energy settings

- I rode also one time with GPS lock

Strava track recording works fine at the same time.

Any clues? Resetting Locus Map Pro?


OK, try resetting Locus - we register only your issue of this kind so this probably won't be Locus fault in general.


Resetting Locus Map Pro fixed it.
