Pop-up and Battery drain

Tom Fidelio shared this problem 22 months ago

OS: Android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow)


After updating Locus Map Pro from 3.19 to 3.21 a tiny pop-up (no message, just grey bar with Locus icon) is shown about every 5 seconds when Locus runs in background. If Locus is in foreground, the pop-up is not shown. The behaviour comes along with a noticable battery drain.


I assume it has to do something with the change

'add: another attempt to keep Locus "alive" (keep app awake when GPS is enabled and app is in background)'


Is it possible to disable this new feature?

Good day Tom,

the reason why something like this happen may be correct. May you please post me here a screenshot, how this tiny popup look like?


Anyway increased battery drain should be really hardly noticable. Btw you arte using some custom rom? What device?

Thanks for your answer. I have attached a screenshot showing this 'pop-up'. I used Locus during a 2 week trip every day for about 10 hours and after the update the battery life was definetly worse.


My device is a Moto G 1. Gen with Custom ROM.

Hello Tom,

thanks for a screenshot. Damn custom rom.


Oki, thanks. I'll disable this feature to next Locus Map version (next week probably) and make it only optional over config.cfg file.
